Kaara Pidi Kozhukattai – 2

Hello friends,
I have already made kaara kozhukattai/Uppu urundai earlier with red chillies and posted before, but now I made the same kaara kozhukattai with green chillies and ginger. This kaara kozhukattai is a wonderful and a healthy evening snacks for kids after school. I made this kaara kozhukattai for Vinayagar chathurthi and I am sharing it with you all.

Here’s how to make Kaara Kozhukattai with step by step photos…


1 cup
As needed
1 ¾  cup
Grated coconut
1 tbsp
2 tsp finely chopped

For Tempering

1 tbsp
Mustard seeds
½ tsp
Cumin seeds
½ tsp
Channa dal/Kadala paruppu
1 tsp
Urad dal
1 tsp
Green chillies
2 finely chopped
1 inch piece finely chopped
Curry leaves
6 to 8


Heat oil in a kadai, splutter mustard seeds, then add cumin seeds, channa dal, urad dal and saute until they turn golden brown.

Now add the green chillies, ginger, curry leaves and saute until raw smell goes off.

Add the water, salt and let it boil. Once it starts to boil add the rice flour slowly and keep stirring constantly.

Add the grated coconut, cilantro and mix thoroughly and switch off the stove.

When it is still warm, grease your hands with oil and make balls in your hand and press them with fingers as shown in the photo or just roll it.

Grease the idli plates and arrange all the pidi kozhukattais and steam cook them for about 10 to 12 min. Switch off the stove and let it cool for few minutes.

The cooked kara pidi kozhukattai will look shiny and ready to be offered as neivadhyam or as a wonderful evening snack.
