Paal Kozhukattai - A Chettinad Delicacy

Wishing You All A Happy Tamil New Year!!

Its has been ages i prepared this wonderful looking paal kozhukattais, finally to celebrate Tamilian's new year i prepared this delicious kozhukattais...Paal kozhukattai can be prepared either with milk,coconut milk and sugar or else with jaggery syrup and coconut milk..This time i went for jaggery syrup and coconut milk, this paal kozhukattais turned out super delicious and my teddies didnt stop enjoying this delicious traditional sweet...Paal Kozhukattais are famous Chettinad delicacy generally made for new moms or pregnant ladies also at the same time its quite a delicious evening snacks to enjoy without any hesitation..These kozhukattais can be served chilled or warm,eventhough i love slightly warm kozhukattais..I prepared this kozhukattais with parboiled rice while some peoples goes for raw rice,even its time consuming its worth to make this fabulous sweets..

Paal Kozhukattai

1cup Parboiled rice
2cups Water
Salt(a pinch)
1tsp Oil
3cups Coconut milk
1cup Jaggery sryup (can decrease or increase)
1tsp Cardamom powder

Soak the parboiled rice for 3hours with two cups of water, grind the rice with soaked water as fine paste..heat the oil in a non stick pan, pour the grounded rice batter,salt and cook in medium flame until the batter turns thick paste and its leaves the sides of the pan..make small balls from the thickened rice paste and keep aside..

Meanwhile bring boil the coconut milk and jaggery syrup together, add now the rolled balls to the boiling coconut milk-jaggery syrup, put the flame in simmer and cook for 10minutes once the cooked balls starts floating,put off the flame and add the cardamom powder, give a stir..

Serve warm or chilled...

i never knew this was a chettinad speciality....my mom makes a version of this...but that is white in color. i guess she uses sugar instead of jaggery. would love to surprise her with this the next time i go home. :)
