It has been a crazy month and I have been on my toes. We moved to a new place and that explains why I haven’t posted in a while. Without much ado, I am sharing with you my aunt’s recipe for Pidi (Kerala Style Rice Dumplings). This is the authentic recipe for Kottayam Style Pidi which is a part of the traditional Knanaya Cuisine. These rice dumplings have a thick sauce unlike some dry versions of Pidi Kozhukutta. Pidi is almost always served with Chicken Curry.
Pidi (Kerala Style Rice Dumplings)
- The water required for preparing the dumplings will vary depending on the rice flour used.
- You can use Avalos Podi and Rice Flour in any proportion for making Pidi.
- If you don’t have Avalos Podi, you can make it with Roasted Rice Flour or Puttu Podi. If you are using only Rice flour, make sure you add an extra cup of grated coconut and an extra teaspoon of cumin while boiling the water.
