Kara Pidi Kozhukattai | Kara Kozhukattai | Vinayagar Chathurthi Recipe

Kara Pidi Kozhukattai, a steamed savoury dumpling made from rice flour. I make them often at home as a snack for evening or as breakfast with some chutney and it's delicious in both ways.

 As vinayagar chathurthi is around the corner, I thought maybe this kozhukattai recipe would be useful for beginners who're looking for something easy without much effort.
