Paal Kozhukattai Recipe | Paal Kolukattai | Milk Kolukattai with step by step photo and video recipe. South Indian dessert recipes are typically categorised as payasam or kheer recipes. These are typically prepared with coconut milk or creamy many with either lentils, rice or semolina as their base for consistency. However, there are other types of dessert recipes which are a combination of coconut milk, milk, rice flour and paal kozhukattai recipe is one such simple dessert recipe.

As I was explaining earlier, this is a unique and exciting South Indian dessert recipe. Basically, the rice flour balls or goli’s are steamed and then later cooked in coconut milk and finally with creamy cow’s milk. Thus it has all the goodness and creaminess of all the ingredients. Some regions of South India may prepare it with either coconut milk or cow’s milk. But authentically it is prepared with both. Thus making it one of the creamiest and most tasty kozhukattai dessert recipes. You may even prepare it with jaggery to have a healthier and brown-coloured dessert. But the sugar-based paal kolukattai is more attractive and tastier. Do try this variation and let me know your preference about it.

Paal Kolukattai Furthermore, some more related and additional tips, suggestions and variations to the paal kozhukattai recipe. Firstly, I have used fine textured rice flour for this recipe. Basically, it helps to get smooth and hassle-free rice balls. In an authentic recipe, rice is soaked and ground to a paste which is later shaped. However, it can be tricky so rice flour is a good option. Secondly, due to the use of rice flour, coconut milk and milk the consistency may thicken once it is rested. You may add water or milk to lower its texture and heat it before serving. Lastly, if you want to avoid sugar, you may use jaggery or brown sugar as a healthier option. In addition, you may also add khoya or mawa for a much creamier option.
