Ingredients to make PALMUNJI

  • Pala gunda Powder or Chunks - 1/2 glass
  • sugar - 1/2 glass
  • milk - 1/2 litre
  • coconut Grated - 1/2 glass
  • Broken cashew Pieces - 10
  • Elachi Powder - a pinch

How to make PALMUNJI

  1. Dissolve and soak pala gunda for 10 minutes in sufficient water. The powder will settle down and the impurities will be floating atop. Gently drain off the water and dirt. Repeat this process again.
  2. In a milk vessel, boil the milk. Add grated coconut, elachi powder and sugar and optionally cashew pieces.
  3. Drain the excess water from palagunda.
  4. Like custard, slowly pour it into the milk vessel and stir continuously to avoid lumps. A semi thickened porridge will be formed.
  5. Switch off the flame after 5 minutes.
  6. Spread a damp cotton towel on the slab. With a small ladle, pour the porridge over the cloth into mini set dosa like dumplings. After all the porridge is done, close it with another cloth for ½ hour.

My Tip:

A quick way of spreading the mix: Instead of small dosas, take a flat big plate and spread a moist cotton towel. Spread the mix uniformly and cover it with the cloth. After ½ hour, remove the cloth. Cut into big squares or diamonds.
