Happy Krishnashtami friends..
I made this "Pala Thalikalu" for krishna's birthday. I made this for first time ever & we loved it. I used milk maid instead for milk & sugar to make my job easy.
2 Cups of milk (1 cup milk maid & 1 cup water)
1/2 Cup rice flour
3/4 Cup sugar(Adjust Acc.)
3/4 Cup water
Pinch of salt
2 Tbs ghee
1 Tbs of chopped almonds & dry fruits
Pinch of saffron
Heat water in a bowl. Bring them to boil & switch off heat.Take rice flour in a bowl along with pinch of salt. Now add hot water little by little while mixing the flour & forming in to dough. Once you have the dough throw the remaining water.
Add 1tbs of ghee to dough & knead it. Now take small portions and make balls with them. You can shape them as you like but I made them as cylindrical shape. Follow the same with rest of the dough & keep aside.
Heat a vessel with milk. Bring it to boil for 5mins.Now add sugar to milk. Later add elachi & saffron. Switch off the heat & then add the the rice balls made before slowly to the milk mixture. Heat milk on medium heat for 10mins & switch off.
Take a pan with 1 tbs ghee & add almonds,dry fruits to it. Fry them for 2mins. Add it to milk mixture & mix them well.
Serve it cold or warm it tastes yum..
1. You may not need the whole 3/4 cup of water. Stop adding water when a perfect dough is formed.
