Pidiyum Kozhiyum, A traditional Kerala Christian food...

Ingredients :

For Pidi :

  • Rice flour : 1 cup + 1 Tbsp
  • Salt : as required
  • Grated coconut : ¾ cup
  • Crushed cumin seeds : ½ Tsp
  • Crushed shallots : 5
  • Curry leaves : few
  • Water : 4 to 5 cups
Add salt, ¼ cup of grated coconut, crushed cumin seeds, crushed shallots and few curry leaves into the water and boil it. Then, pour the required amount of water into the rice flour and mix it well. Allow it to cool. Then, make it into a soft dough (same like kozhukatta or idiyappam dough). Add little coconut and required amount of salt at this point. Combine it well and make it into small balls. Keep it aside. 

Again, heat the rest of the water and when it starts boiling, add the above prepared rice balls, rest of the grated coconut, few curry leaves and salt  into it and cook well. Mix the 1 tbsp of rice flour with half cup of water. When the rice balls are fully cooked, pour the rice flour mix into it and make it thick. Remove it from fire. Serve it hot with yummy and spicy chicken curry.
