  • 1 cup - Sugar
  • 1 cup - raw Rice
  • 1/2 cup - Coconut Milk
  • Saffron threads, a few
  • 1 tsp - Cardamom powder
  • How to Make Paal Kozhukattai:

    1. Soak the rice in water for 30 mins.
    2. Grind the rice in mixer to a fine paste.
    3. Heat the ground paste in a heavy bottomed pan; keep the flame low and stir continuously.
    4. The paste flour will slowly thicken and will become like a chapatti dough. This is the correct consistency.

    9. Add milk if the water reduces.
    10. Add the remaining milk, coconut milk and add sugar.
    11. When the mixture starts to boil, add cardamom powder and remove from flame.
    12. You can add jaggery instead of sugar.
