Feels so nice to share a sweet recipe today for my blog turns one.I really couldn’t believe that without getting bored for almost 12 months I have been blogging successfully.I never ever thought I would be managing a food blog.May be the interests towards blog is lodged deep within myself which I never knew until I started one.
So happy to be part of WordPress community through which I’m learning new cuisines everyday from all over the world.
As part of the celebration I’d like to post a traditional sweet recipe,Paal kozhukatai using milk,coconut milk and rice flour.An easy ,simple sweet recipe that does not require any steaming process as well.
I make these Paal Kozhukattais especially for Vinayagar Chathurthi for the pure white colour that makes it more divine and perfect for nivedhyam.
PREPARATION TIME : 15 MINS
COOKING TIME : 20 MINS
1/2 cup -2 tbsp water
1 cup sugar heaped
1 cup cow’s milk
1/2 cup coconut milk
1/4 tsp cardamom powder
2 tbsp grated coconut
1/8 tsp salt
Ghee for greasing hands to make small balls
In a large bowl mix the flour and salt together.Bring water to boil and add it to the flour to make soft ,smooth dough.Make small balls out of the dough by greasing your hands with ghee.
In a kadai add 1 cup cow’s milk and bring it to boil.When it boils add the flour balls one by one and let it cook for 15 mins on low flame with a closed lid.When it is cooked add the coconut milk.
Add the sugar and let it boil.Cook for 2 mins on low flame until the sugar dissolves.Switch off the flame now and add the cardamom powder.
Finally add the grated coconut.
Serve the Paal kozhukatai warm or chilled.
TAKE CARE TIPS
Add the rice balls when the milk starts to boil really well otherwise the balls might get dissolved.
Drop the balls one by one leaving gaps in between them.
After adding coconut milk just cook for 2 mins else the milk starts to curdle.
