This pidi kozhukattai is made with Red Rice Puttu Podi (flour). It pairs well with any spicy chutney.


  • Rice flour – 2 cups

  • Coconut gratings – 1 cup

  • Salt – ½ teaspoon


  • Fry the rice flour in a dry kadai till nice aroma comes out.
  • Boil 2 cups of water along with salt.
  • Mix the fried rice flour and coconut gratings in a broad vessel. Add the boiling water little by little and mix with a wooden spoon and make a hard dough. Take out a small lemon size dough and make a ball and keep it in your palm just press it by your fingers. Finish all the dough like this. Arrange it in a greased idli plate and steam it for ten to fifteen minutes.
  • Note: You can use puttu podi also for this. When using the Puttu Podi, just add salt and coconut gratings to the puttu podi, sprinkle warm water and make a thick dough (like chapati dough). Prepare Kozhukattai as above.
  • Tips:
  • I have prepared the kozhukattai with Red Rice Puttu Podi. Goes well with any spicy chutney.


  1. hi kamala,

    your website is very nice and informative..kudos..i saw this pidi kozhukattai recipe but from what my mom makes i guess you must add seasonings..nly then it will taste nice…i think this will taste bland…


  2. Thank you Sivagami for visiting my site. Pidi Kozhukattai can be made with variations. This is a simple salt Kozhukattai, normally served with spicy onion chutney. The other one is seasoned Kozhukattai, that also I have posted under “Uppuma Kozhukattai” and a more spicy variety “Spicy Kozhukattai” is also posted here. Please check the same.

    Thanks for your input.
