Sweet Pidi Kozhukattai Recipe
Sweet pidi kozhukattai is one of my favs both the traditional way or this easy rice flour method, I love both.As vinayagar chaturthi is fast approaching I am here to post this easy rice flour sweet kozhukattai.I usually prefer the sweet kozhukattai than the savory version.

Trust me, this is very easy to make without any fuss..You can even make this as a snack for kids.If you have homemade processed rice flour then thats good else try out with readymade idiyappam flour and it works good too.
