Kara Pidi Kozhukattai with Rice

     Mostly for preparing kozhukattais rice flour is used. But in Kongu Region (Coimbatore and surrounding region) rice is soaked and made into a idli type batter and used.  This kozhukattai is more tastier than rice flour kozhukattai.

     It’s not only a very good snack but also can be served for breakfast or dinner with coconut chutney.
