Paruthi Paal or Cotton seed milk is a highly nutritious recipe and has so many health benefits in them. Paruthi paal is very new to me, but i wanted to make this for a long time ever since i saw the recipe in a cookbook. I asked satheesh to buy some cotton seed for me for a long time. This seeds is only available in special shops, so few days back he bought it from a shop he came across. I immediately make this cotton seed milk the next day.
To my surprise this tasted delicious like payasam or kheer. The cotton seed has a very unique taste to it and it was totally yum. The aroma of it was very unique and very tasty too. After making this and tasting i did few research on the internet and came to know that this has so many health benefits in them as well.
Usually rice is soaked and ground strained and then milk from it is added. You could use any millets instead of rice. Rice adds a nice thickness to the mix and helps to make it taste good. To make it even more rich you could add some ground nut paste in this as well.
