One of my viewer requested this recipe so many months back . I was checking out my to do recipes and found this sitting in the top list. So decided to try it out. I love this a lot, one of my collegues will bring this to office often, her mom makes the most delicious melt in mouth paal kolukattai in the world. I asked her the recipe and have made this quite often, but forgot to take pictures of it.
As ganesh chaturthi is right around the corner, i thought this kolukattai recipe would be a great addition to the list. Although it is not traditionally made on that day, but i would love to add it to the list since this recipe is from the lord ganesh's beloved kolukattai family. I hope you will try it out and let me know how it turned out for you..
I have another one very unique kolukattai recipe to be posted.So stay tuned..
Preparation Time: 15 mins
Cooking Time : 30 mins
Serves : 4 to 5
Rice Flour / Arisi Mavu - 1 cup ( I used readymade rice flour)
Salt - 1/2 tsp
Water - 1 1/2 cup
Thin Coconut Milk - 2 cup (Click here for recipe)
Thick Coconut Milk - 1 cup (Click here for recipe)
Cardamom Powder - 1 tsp
Ghee - 1 tsp
Sugar - 1/2 cup or to taste
Take rice flour in a bowl and add in water. Mix well so it forms into a smooth batter.
Heat a nonstick kadai and pour this batter in it. Cook this on low heat stiring constantly so it thickens and leaves the sides of the pan and form into a dough.
Remove the dough into a bowl and let it cool a little. Add ghee to it and knead into a smooth dough.
Apply ghee on your fingers. Take small portions from it and form into tiny little balls.
Now heat thin coconut milk in a kadai. Let it come to a good boil.
Once it starts boiling add the small kolukattai in the milk slowly. The milk should be always boiling when you add the kolukattai. So add the balls slowly, dont add it all at once.
Let this cook for 5 mins. Now add in sugar and cardamom powder and mix well.Let this simmer for 2 mins.
Now switch off the heat and add the thicker creamier coconut milk. Mix well and serve.
Serve this warm or at room temp.
