Sweet Pidi Kozhakattai

Sweet_Pidi_Kozhakattai_1 Sweet Pidi Kozhakattais are mostly prepared with rice flour (arisi maavu) for Puja. Here I have tried out with Rice Rava. This Pidi Kozhakattai is not sticky and easy to chew.

Serves: 4

Cooking time: 30 minutes


  • Rice rava – 1 cup
  • Jaggery chopped – 1/2 cup
  • Grated coconut – 1/2 cup
  • Cardamom – 4 no



Step 1

  • Boil jaggery with 2 cups of water; boil it till jaggery dissolves fully.
  • Fry rice rava in a dry pan, till rava turns to golden colour.
