Paala poori

I have learned this divine recipe from my mother in law. Pooris are soaked in protein rich coconut milk. The flavour is intensified by adding saffron.

Pooris will melt in the mouth just like that......hmmmm

Poori – 10 
Milk – 500 ml
Coconut + rice milk – 500 ml
(To prepare this we need 1 whole fresh coconut and 4 tbsp of rice soaked in water for 30 min )
Cashews – 10
Almonds – 10
Cardamom – 1 or 2

Prepare the poori bit smaller than the usual size so that they can be fit in a serving cup.
To prepare the coconut milk, grind the fresh coconut along with the soaked rice and extract the milk. Filter and remove the pulp.

Coconut and rice milk

Soak cashews, almonds in warm water for about 10-20 minutes and grind them into paste along with cardamom.
Take a sturdy vessel and heat the milk. When the milk gets heated up (not boiled) add the coconut + rice milk and the almond + cashew paste.

Stir every thing and bring it to boil.
Reduce the flame and boil the milk further more until it thickens.
Take the serving bowls. Place 1or 2 poori in a serving bowl.

Now pour the hot milk over it until the pooris gets soaked. Do this 30 minutes before serving, so that the heat gets reduced to room temperature and the pooris get soaked well in the milk, become soft and tastes divine.
