Many of us were hunting for different recipes through internet.  This is a yummy sweet from chettinad cuisine which you can try during festivals.

We add milk and cardomom powder to improve the taste and flavour to the dish. You can also garnish with roasted and sliced nuts to the paal kolukattai which is optional. These kolukattais were usually served in cups with spoons, because the kolukattais were floated in sweetened milk.

In the beginning it will go down and when it gets cooked, kolukattai will float to clarify it comes to the top. (Kolukattai will be half cooked already because we have added boiling water to make the dough and the rest will be cooked in cow milk)
