I am curious, what is a “toddy”? This sounds tasty and I’d love to sample. Thanks for sharing with Fiesta Friday!

Palm toddy or palm wine, is an alcoholic beverage. More simply Toddy is fermented coconut water. Tastes like Beer.

I’ve never heard of popatjee but it looks delicious!! I could probably make this in my takoyaki pan!

I don’t think I have ever seen toddy in the store, is there a substitute? Thank you for bringing this to FF.

Yes, you can use beer or active yeast for fermenting the dough.

What is the substitute for toddy? I don’t like beer. Can I use curd? If so, what is the quantity? Are toddy and yeast both required?
ParsiCuisine.comJan 1, 2023, 11:27 am
Yes toddy and yeast are both required for popatjee.
You can use curd but I cannot vouch on the results. Do try and let me know if it works.
