Gothambu pidiyum charum | Wheat dumplings in coconut sauce with step by step photos and video recipe. A simple recipe that is common in Kozhikode, Kerala. Pidiyum charum is a breakfast recipe that is usually made with rice flour.

This is neither a sweet nor a salt-based dish. Both sweet and salt will be balanced in this dish. Having excess sauce is our preference. Can reduce the quantity or simmer to a thick consistency.

Consistency and quantity is our preference. I love to have the coconut milk drink (Chaaru) separately after having this. zero oil breakfast recipe. While the routine breakfast like Idli, Wheat dosa, poori, idiyappam, chapathi, upma is so routine and the variation of it makes it worth trying.
