Sweet Pidi Kozhukattai/Vella Pidi Kozhukattai

                                                                          I already posted the salt version of the pidi kozhukattai. There are not many recipes on the web or books for the sweet pidi kozhukattai or vella pidi kozhukattai but my mother used to make both varieties whenever she makes this kozhukattai.
.Though my mother used to make both sweet and salt kozhukattais I am more fond of the salty version.Salt kozhukattais goes well with some tomato chutney or any other chutneys.The sweet version does not even need an accompaniment.It is real treat to people who like jaggery taste

You will Need

  • One cup of Raw rice broken
  • One cup of Powdered Jaggery
  • Three cups Water
  • Few Cardamoms
  • One tbs Scraped Coconut

How to

  • Dissove the powdred jaggery in hot water completely and strain for impurities.

  • Heat this jaggery water in a wide pan and add crushed cardamom and scraped coconut and allow it to boil.

  • When it boils slowly add the raw rice broken' s and keep stirring continuously to avoid any lumps.

  • When it becomes thick mass cover with a lid and cook for five minutes.
  • Allow it to cool down(you can spread it on a plate and cool it or wait till it cools down)and then apply little oil in your hands,take a small portion and roll it in to a cylindrical dumpling.

  • Steam it in a steamer or idli cooker for five to seven (5-7)minutes.Repeat the same till the mixture gets done.

  • Dissolve the jaggery in hot water and filter it for impurities.
  • Do not increase the  quantity of jaggery because if the jaggery syrup becomes thick then the rice broken' s will not get cooked.
  • You can use silvered coconut instead of scrapings.
  • Cook 90% in the stove itself so that you need not steam for long.
