Urad Dal Halwa/Ulundhu Kali~~IC Challenge

Our this month's Indian Cooking Challenge is this most famous Tamilian ulunthu kali.Most of the young gals from Tamilnadu would have tasted this healthy,nutritious kali once they attain their puberty,this healthy dish is quite a must. I still remember my grandma came from her village with a box of this kali with loads of gingelly oil and fresh eggs to feed me on that particular day.This kali is also very good for women to get rid of their back pain. Seriously i didnt prepared or heard about this kali after that, when i checked the Srivalli's mail with this month's challenge, i was quite happy to try out a traditional recipe after a long.

I prepared this halwa last week and carried with us when we went for a weekend trip,an excellent dish to enjoy anytime of the day either warm or chilled. I have already seen this kali prepared at home, so i wasnt that much hard for me to cook them up.


1/4cup Rice(roasted)
1/4cup Urad dal(roasted)
1+1/2cups Water
1/4cup Grated jaggery
1/2tsp Cardamom powder
3tbsp Gingelly oil

Dry roast the rice and urad daal separately until they turn slightly brown.

Grind them as a coarse powder.

Heat the water to boil,add the jaggery and cook until it melts.

Now strain the jaggery syrup and bring it to boil.

Slowly start adding the flours and cardamom powder, stir continously,take cake not to form lumps.

Add oil slowly and stir continously.

Cook on slow fire for a few minutes until they turns as a thick paste.

Enjoy warm.
