How to make Thirattipal

  1. Dry roast moon dal. Saute it till it turns to golden brown colour. Take care not to burn it. Cool down and grind it in a mixer to a fine powder. Keep it aside.
  2. Grind grated coconut in a mixer for 2 seconds without water. It should not be a fine powder. It is to make thiratu paal a crunchy one. The texture will also look good.
  3. Add milk, jaggery, sugar, coconut in a pan. Do not add water.
  4. Once the mixture starts boiling, add moong dal powder and cardamom powder. Stir frequently to avoid the thirattu pal sticking to the pan. Stir it till it becomes non sticky.
  5. Switch off once thriatu pal becomes a thick paste or like milk khova. Bubbles will also start coming at this stage. That is the right stage to switch off.
  6. The whole process takes 30 - 35 minutes for 500ml milk. Transfer it immediately to the storage container. Pour 3 tsp melted ghee over the thiratu pal.
  7. Fry cashews in 1 tsp ghee till they turn to golden brown colour. Add it to the thiratu pal.
