Whenever i eat 'pal kozhukattai' it brings my nostalgic memories of my childhood.In those days we used to spend our holidays in our grandma's home.Each and everyday is filled with full of enjoyment and variety of special snacks and sweets.If my grandma made pal kozhukattai,me and my sisters,brothers and my cousins sit together in the middle of the big hall and enjoy that special dish with lots and lots of fun and laughter.With my sweet memories i like to share our favourite dish with you.I am sure you will like it.
Idly rice -- 2 cups[ i used a small cup nearly 125 gms of rice]
Jaggery -- 2 and 1/2
Coconut[ medium size ] --- 1/2 of the coconut
Milk -- 1/2 cup
Water -- 4 cups
Cardamom --3 nos
Salt -- less than a pinch or 1or 2 salt
Soak the rice in water for 4 hours.
Wash it and grind it without water.while grinding add only little amount of water.
The batter should be nice and tight,then only we can make kozhukattai.
When the rice becomes nice,take it out from the grinder.
Add half of the shredded coconut with the batter,mix well.
Then made the entire batter into small balls or long strips.
I used made like long strips like this
keep thick bottom pan on the stove, large enough to have the balls with water.
Pour the water,boil,add sliced jaggery and salt.allow it to boil well.
Then add the dry balls to the boiling water.Add milk.
Don't put the spoon inside the pan before the balls boiled and came up.
When it starts to comes up,u can stir it slowly,turns the balls.
If the balls becomes stiff it comes to the end of boiling.
The liquid consistency should be like thick milk.
Add the remaining half shredded coconut and cardamoms to it.
Mix well. Off the stove.
NOW, PAL KOZHUKATTAI IS READY TO SERVE.
If the consistency becomes so thick, add milk to ur expecting consistency.
Raise the level of water,jaggery,milk and coconut according to ur
quantity of rice.
Use medium flame.
