Paal Kozhukattai (Rice Dumplings In Coconut Milk) SNC Challenge 5

Hi Friends,
 Was away from my blog for almost 1 week...Back with a dessert. I completed my SNC challenge at last. I will the last one to complete the challenge, I guess.... 
Paal Kozhukattai is famous dessert from South...Made up of rice flour in coconut milk.

SNC Challenge to North Team was given by Tamil from TamilsKitchen and Challenge given to South Team was by Sanoli from Sanolisrecipes......


When I saw the recipe I was not in favour of making it....but when I tried it, Guess what ???? It was a huge hit. 
I served it chilled, it tasted like Rasgullas, which is a famous dessert from North India.




Ingredients:
  • 1 cup rice flour
  • 1/2 coconut (grated)
  • 1/2 cup sugar 
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom powder
  • 1/2 cup milk + 2 1/2 cup water
  • 3 tsp ghee
  • Salt a pinch



Method:
  • Grind coconut with 1/2 cup water, extract the 1/2 cup thick milk.
  • In the same grated coconut add 2 cups of water, extract 2 cup of thin milk. Keep both thick and thin milk aside.
  • Take a non stick kadai, add milk, water,ghee, rice flour and a pinch of salt.

  • Heat on medium flame until the water evaporates and forms a soft dough. Keep stirring constantly.

  • Add 1 tbsp of ghee knead the dough nicely. 

  • Divide the dough in equal portion.
  • Now grease your palms and make tiny balls of desired shape and size.

  • Now take 2 cups of thin coconut milk along with cardamom powder in a vessel ( I used NON-STICK Kadai. Bring to boil. Keep stirring.

  • Add half of the tiny rice balls in the coconut milk. Wait until the milk boils again. 

  • Now add the remaining balls in the coconut milk.
  • Boil it until the balls float on the top and the milk would have become thicker.
  • Add sugar, cook til sugar dissolves completely.

  • Now take the thick coconut milk. Put off the stove and add this thick milk in the dish and mix well.
  • Serve hot or chilled.
  • Enjoy
