For dough:
1 cup rice flour

2 cup water
1 tspn ghee
Pinch of salt

For sweet sauce:
3/4 cup milk

1/2 cup sugar
1 cardamom (crushed)

For tempering:
1 tblspn ghee

6-7 cashews
6-7 raisins


1. Dry Roast the rice flour for 2-3 minutes in a pan( Roast in medium flame so that the colour doesn’t change). Keep aside.

2. Heat water in a bowl. Add salt and ghee to it. As the water starts bubbling, switch off the stove.

3. Immediately add the water to the rice flour slowly and mix with a spatula so as to get a hot dough. Leave the dough to cool for 5-8 minutes

4. Make as many small balls as possible from all of the dough.

5. Steam the balls in idli steamer them for 2-3 minutes(before placing the balls, grease the idli plate)

6. Heat 3/4 cup milk in a vessel and boil until the milk reduces to 1/2 cup of milk. Now add the sugar and the crushed cardamom. Boil for another 2 minutes for the sugar to melt.

7. Now add the rice balls to milk and cook for 2-3 minutes in medium flame(longer cooking would break the balls as they are already cooked). Switch off the stove. Now your paal kozhukkattai is ready.

8. Heat ghee in a pan. Add the cashews and raisins. Roast and pour it over the paal kozhukkattai and serve.

Happy cooking!
