Pal Urundai/ Rice flour balls in milk sauce

You will need:

  • 1 cup puttu flour
  • ¾ cup grated coconut
  • pinch of cardamom powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp sugar(optional)
  • 1 cup milk or coconut milk
  • 2 cup water + 2 tbsp water
  • ¼ cup boiled water

Step 1:

Boil 2 cups of water in a pan. In the mean time take a mixing bowl and add puttu flour, grated coconut, salt and sugar,boiled water and mix it with a spoon.

Step 2:

When the dough is still warm just shape it as small balls. The size of the ball should be smaller than golf ball. Smaller the ball size it taste better.

Step 3:

Just drop the balls into the boiling water one by one and allow it to cook for 5 mins. After 5 mins just add the milk and cardamom powder along with this mixture and allow it to boil for few more minutes(5 to 7 mins) till the urunda is fully cooked inside. Add salt and sugar at this stage if needed.

Step 4:

Mix a tbsp of puttu flour with 2 tbsp cold water and then pour it to the boiling(water, milk, puttu balls) mixture. This will thicken the sauce. By mixing the puttu flour with water you can avoid lump formations.

Step 5:

Pal urunda is now ready to serve. You can serve this for breakfast.


You can make this urunda only with sugar too. Even that will taste good.

Don't press it too hard to get the ball shape. This will harden the balls and will take more time to cook
