Paal Kozhukattai



Paal Kozhukattai is one of the traditional dishes. It is prepared by using Milk, coconut or sometimes using only jaggery syrup. If u add coconut milk or milk it gives a rich taste. I tried without using milk/coconut milk and added some grated coconut at the end and it tastes good.

Ingredients:
1 cup Rice flour
1½ cups water (more or less according to make dough)
½ cup grated jaggery (more or less according to taste)
½ tsp cardamom powder
2 cups for making syrup
2 tsp grated coconut

Preparation:
1. Boil water in a pan.
2. Add hot water to the rice flour and mix well to make soft dough.
3. Apply oil to your palm and make small balls from the dough.
4. Heat grated Jaggery and a cup of water in a vessel. Once the jaggery is completely dissolved in water, strain the jaggery syrup to remove impurities from the jaggery.
5. Add a cup of water to jaggery syrup and bring it to boil.
6. Add the dumplings to jaggery syrup little by little. Keep the stove in medium heat till the dumplings are cooked and blended with the jaggery syrup.
7. Finally add grated coconut, cardamom powder and mix well.
