Paal Kozhukattai is one of the famous Sweet from Chettinad Cuisine. This sweet dumpling is made from rice flour and soaked in thick coconut milk with cardamom pwd. It is  prepared specially on some festive  occasions like Ganesh Chathurthi..!

This yummy sweet is my favorite, since my childhood days, but never tried by myself. When I saw this recipe in Rak s Kitchen blog,  loved to try it immediately. It came out really good and tasted divine. Thanks Raks for this awesome recipe..!
