A health drink..Uluntham Paal/Urad dhal milk

Two days back my younger daughter came up with a note from the school asking for an authentic recipe which should be the kid's favourite dish too..I just gave a list to yazhini and asked her which was her best and she picked up this ulunthu paal..I thought I had posted the recipe in my blog so that I could download it from the blog and sent it to her school..but....After scanning the pages I found I had missed posting the dish which we make very often at home.With no wait I edited the pictures and started posting it...
Urad Dhal is a popular and healthier legume in India..It is being used in variety of dishes and the one I had posted is apt for a morning healthy drink.In this hurry burry life kids try to skip their morning breakfast which is a very bad practise..So during that time I make this Urad Dhal Paal/milk and give them which gives them the energy and strength to start the day well..
So make this easy,authentic,healthy drink and relish ur taste buds..
For the recipe pls press READ MORE below..



1/4 Cup of Urad Dhal(Skinless)/White lentils
1 Cup of milk
60 gms or more of palm jaggery/Jaggery
1/2 Tsp of dry ginger powder/SUkku powder
1 and 1/2 cups of water
1 Tsp of cardamom powder or 3 nos. of cardamom
2 Tbsp of grated coconut
1 Tsp of Kesari masal milk


Dry roast the urad dhal in the kadai.
Roast it till it becomes little brown so that the raw smell goes off.
In the pressure cooker add roasted urad dhal and water.

Pressure cook the urad dhal for 2-3 whistles so that it gets cooked well.
Then mash the cooked dhal lightly.

Add milk and mix well.
Then add kesari milk masala,dry ginger powder and mix well.

Add cardamom powder and mix well.
Then add palm jaggery/jaggery and mix well.
After adding jaggery cook the dish in low flame

Cook till it turns into kheer consistency.
Then add grated coconut and mix well.
Serve it hot or chill it and serve it.


  • If u want it in thin consistency then add more milk.
  • If u want it in porridge consistency then make it little thick.
  • Kesari milk masala is optional.
  • Dry roast the urad dhal nicely till the raw smell goes off.Or else the taste will not be good.
  • After adding jaggery make the dish to cook in low flame or else the milk will start to curdle.
  • Instead of dry ginger powder u can use fresh grated dry ginger...
