  • 1 cup - Rice flour (idiyappam flour/puttu podi)
  • Boiling water as required
  • 1 cup - Coconut Milk (can be replaced with Milk)
  • 1 cup - Milk
  • 1/2 cup - Sugar
  • How to Make Paal Pidi:

    1. Boil water with a pinch of salt.
    2. Pour it into the rice flour little by little, mixing with a spoon as you go.
    3. Once it all comes together, knead for a minute to get a soft dough.
    4. Take a small pinch of this dough, no bigger than the size of a cherry, and roll into a small ball. Repeat until the rice flour dough is used up.
    5. Steam these pidi in an idli cooker for 10 - 15 minutes, till they are cooked through.
    6. If the balls are big, it may not cook in the middle, so keep the size of the pidi small.
    7. In a wide thick bottomed pan, mix coconut milk, sugar and whole milk together and bring to a boil.
    8. Add the steamed pidi into it and let it boil for 10-15 minutes till it thickens a bit.
    9. Taste in between and add more sugar if required.
    10. Add half a tsp of cardamom powder, if desired and serve hot or cold, decorated with nuts.
    11. You can make this with coconut milk or whole milk alone or use a combination of both.
