Learn how to make Mizoram Koat Pitha the healthy way in a Kuzhi Paniyaram Kal instead of frying it.
This month, us bloggers from Shhhhh Cooking Secretly Challenge traveled to the beautiful north eastern state of Mizoram. A state nestled in the southern tip of north eastern India. This beautiful state has a pleasant climate through out the year and has an amazing array of flora and Fauna
Though most of the people are Christians by faith, the Mizos are very proud of their rich heritage, culture and lively traditions.
Poonam who blogs at Annapurna gave me Rice flour and oil as my secret ingredients to create a delicious dish from the Mizo Land.
Looked at many blogs to get an idea of the recipe for Koat Pitha and found that it is a simple desert and it is fried. As a family we have more or less reduced our fried food consumption and hence I came up with a plan of making a healthy variation of the traditionally fried Koat Pitha
I decided to use the kuzhi paniyaram kal to make this desert instead of frying it. Using this method greatly reduces the usage of oil and one can have Mizoram Koat Pitha without any guilt.
