About Upma Kozhukattai | Kara Pidi Kozhukattai
Upma, uppumavu, or uppittu is a breakfast dish from the Indian subcontinent that is most common in Kerala, Andhra Pradesh, TamilNadu, Telangana, Karnataka, Maharashtrian, and Sri Lankan Tamil. It is made from dry-roasted semolina or coarse rice flour. Arisi Upma is a traditional and simple breakfast or evening tiffin. Its
a common breakfast in most Tamil Brahmin households. Arisi Upma is made with raw rice, toor dal, pepper, and seasoning ingredients. Rice and dal are pounded to a rava-like coarse powder with peppercorns first.
Kozhukkattai, also known as kozhukatta, is a popular South Indian dumpling made from rice flour and filled with grated coconut, jaggery, or chakkavaratti. Kozhukattai, while typically sweet, can occasionally be stuffed with a savoury filling. Kerala Christians prepare it on the Saturday before Palm Sunday, hence the name
Kozhukatta Saturday. Modak is a similar dish that is prepared in other parts of India. This is a popular dish for the Ganesh Chaturthi festival.
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.
Ingredients for Upma Kozhukattai Recipe
Rice Rava / Arisi Rava / Broken Rice :
Rice rava is simply coarsely ground rice or rice semolina. Because rice semolina is gluten free, it is beneficial to those who are gluten intolerant. It contains a lot of carbohydrates and thus a lot of energy. Rice semolina increases your intake of B-complex vitamins, particularly folate and thiamine.
Urad dal :
When cooked, urad has an earthy flavour and an unusual mucousy texture.
Dry Red Chilli :
Dry red chilli is a condiment that enhances the flavour and colour of food. It contains medicinal and homoeopathic properties. We provide red chillies that are uniform in shape and size. It is mostly used to season foods. The chillies have a strong flavour.
