During Karthigai Deepam this is one of the must in the pakchanam list..Amma makes it only during that festival..Last year during karthigai deepam we made pidi kolukatai, pala appam and pancha mirtham..You can check all the recipes in my blog..I hope you will love it and tell me how it turned out..

Pidi Kolukattai Recipe


Rice flour / Arisi Mavu – 1 cup
Jaggery / Sarkarai – ½ cup
Dry Ginger powder / Chukku podi– 1 tsp
Cardamom Powder / Yelakai Podi– 1 tsp
Coconut – ½ cup
Water- 2 cup


Roast rice flour in a dry pan till it changes colour and a nice aroma comes from it and set it aside.

Melt jaggery in a  pan by adding some water and strain it.

Take this water in a kadai and add coconut to this and mix well.Let it boil for 3 mins.

Then add in rice flour and mix well. It will get thick and the rice flour gets cooked.

Now ad din cardamom and dry ginger and mix well.

Now allow this to cool down. After that start forming kolukattai shape using your hands.The print of your fingers should form in the kolukattai like you see in the picture.

Place this in a steamer and steam for 15-20 mins.
