Rice Dumplings in Sweet Sauce and Salt Sauce / Paal Kolukattai

Rice dumplings in milk2
Decoration: Used rice and miniature plastic coconut shells.

Rice dumplings in salt sauce or sweet sauce is a kind of complicated name that I could find for a very simple and yummy south Indian dish. :) Its nothing but the Paal kolukattai that we all relish. :)

I am a big fan of these and would love it as an evening snack or some times it servers as dinner as well. :)

Simple to make and the two variation makes it all the more interesting and grand on the whole. :)

For Dumplings:


Par boiled rice - 2 cup
Coconut Scrapings - 1 cup
Salt - for taste


Soak par boiled rice in hot water(medium) for two hours. Drain the water and grind the rice along with coconut in mixie into a coarse paste. Don't add much water while grinding, it has to be thick. Add salt to it and mix well.

I used half of the dough to make salt dumplings and the other half for sweet dumplings.

For Salt dumplings


Water - 4 cups
Salt - For taste


Take the water in a big vessel. Add salt and allow it to boil.

Use half the quantity of the above dough to make these salt dumplings.

When it is boiling, make small balls out of the above dough and drop them into the vessel. See to it that the balls don't stick to each other. Reserve one tblsp of the dough and drop the remaining dough as balls into the water. Once you are done with the balls, mix up the reserved dough into the water and stir till it dissolves in the water. This would make the base a little thick and consistent. Now let it boil for another five minutes.

Rice dumplings in salt sauce is done. :)

Serve it with Urad dhall chutney or any pickle. :)

For Sweet dumplings:


Milk - 1/2 liter
Water - 1/2 liter
Jaggery - 1 1/4 cups


Take the milk and water in a heavy bottomed vessel. When the milk starts boiling, make small balls out of the above said dough and drop them gently into the milk. When you done with the dough, add the jaggery and mix until it dissolves completely. Allow it to boil for another five minutes.

Rice dumplings in sweet sauce is ready to eat. :) Serve it hot or cold.

Happy making :)


I am happy to share the info that my blog has been featured in as the "Featured Blog of the Day". :) All smiles :)
