Paal kolukattai Milk Modak is a chettinad sweet which we prepare with rice flour and immerse in sweetened milk. Ganesh chathurthi is nearing and we all were in need of kolukattai/modak recipes. 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.
Preparation time: 30 minutes
To serve: 4 persons
Paal kolukattai Milk Modak – Ingredients:- (200 ml cup used)
- rice flour – 1 cup
- sugar – 1 cup
- cow milk – 1 cup
- grated coconut – 1 cup
- cardomom powder – pinch
Paal kolukattai Milk Modak – Method:-
1. First of all boil water and pour it to rice flour when it is still hot. Knead well and make it into a smooth dough. Put it in a murukku maker and press to get a long rope like piece. Cut it into one inch pieces to make kolukattai as shown in the photo below. (You can also make round ball like kolukattai with your hands if you wish)
2. Secondly extract coconut milk from grated coconut.
3. Thirdly heat cow milk in a container. When it is boiling put the kolukattai little by little. 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)
4. After that when Kolukattai is well cooked and floats in milk or in other words comes to the top, add sugar. Gradually when sugar melts add coconut milk and cardamom powder and switch of the stove.
5. As a result paal kolukattai is ready and you can serve this in a cup along with milk. Like, share and subscribe for more posts
