Paal Kozhukattai - Version 2

Coming to day 3,themed under vegan sweets in Blogging marathon#77 is Paal Kozhukattai.
Paal Kozhukattai is a sweet that can be made in so many ways.In our hometown its made in a different way and I have shared it here.

But today's version is completely different from ours and I got this recipe from a good friend of mine.As the original recipe is with idiyappam flour,I made with it.If you are using the regular rice flour slightly dry roast it without changing the color.

The kozhukattai turned out so soft and kids loved it.If you are using the regular rice flour slightly dry roast it without changing the color and use it.

  • Now in a separate pan heat the thin coconut milk and 1/4 cup of water.
  • To the coconut milk mixture add the cooked ball and the dough paste.Mix it well and cook it for 2 minutes.At this stage add in the melted jaggery syrup.

  • Serve it warm.

  • After adding the thick coconut milk,do not boil it for long time.
  • Instead of making round balls,the dough can be rolled into oblong shape.
  • After adding the rice flour to the boiling water stir it continuously to avoid lump formation.
