Paal Kozhukattai

Only for those who have patience ;)

Yesterday was Ram Navami, so I prepared Paal Kozhukattai. It appears to be a simple recipe but it consumed lot of time to prepare.

Raw rice, salt, milk – 500mg, milk powder (optional), sugar, cardamom powder, coconut milk

> Soak raw rice in water for about 2 hours.
> Drain the water and spread the rice in a clean towel and dry it under the fan.
> When it is little moist blend it in a blender
> Sieve the flour and boil the flour in an idly cooker (spread the flour on a clean cloth and place it in idly tray and boil it as you boil idly)
> Dry the boiled flour under the fan, sieve the flour and keep it aside.
> Boil water and add salt to it when it is very hot.
> Now add this hot water gradually to the flour and mix it with a spoon and make it a soft dough
> Cool the dough and roll it into thin, small, cylindrical kozhukattai
> Place the kozhukattai in a clean cloth and boil them in an idly cooker as you boil idly.
> Boil milk, add diluted milk powder in 1tbsp of milk
> Add kozhukattai and boil for some more time
> To this add sugar, cardamom powder and half a glass of thick coconut milk

Paal kozhukattai ready :)
