Paal kozhukattai

Paal kozhukattai is one of the authentic south Indian foods. This is more famous in chettinad areas. Two months back in SNC group one of the co blogger posted this paal kozhukattai, as a challenge to Northern team form that time I was tempted to try this. Prepared this today, and we all enjoyed it. Happy Tamil New Year to every one. Recipe source Sharmispassions.


¾ cup
Coconut Milk Thick
¾ cup
Coconut Milk Thin
¾ cup
¾ cup
Cardamom powder
¼ tsp
Kozhukkattai Dough:
Rice flour
1 cup
1 tsp
1 cup
1 cup
as per taste



  1. In a large mixing bowl add the ingredients under the list for dough mix well without any lumps.
  2. In a non stick pan add ghee and the rice flour mixture allow it to cook until you reach a dough consistency. It should not be sticky.
  3. When it’s warm to handle knead and form smooth dough. Make small balls (½ - ¾ inch diameter).
  4. Mean while heat milk and water in a sauce pan, when it start to boil simmer add these balls slowly.
  5. Balls will immerse first cover the lid and cook until the balls start to float, add sugar and thin coconut milk and give a gentle stir without breaking the balls.
  6. Again cook for another 3-5 minutes add the thick milk and cardamom powder and allow boiling once.
  7. Let it rest for an hour and serve it warm or cold.

  • Cover the dough with a wet cloth until you start to work with the dough. Instead of sugar you can use jaggery.
  • If feel too much of coconut milk you can reduce the coconut milk and increase milk.
  • If you over cover cook then the balls might break and dissolve.
