Hey, thanks for sharing this recipe. this is very delicious drink.
I wanted to know that have you observed any cons of this drink? is thee any consumption limit for this drink? And are you aware of gossypol protein present in cottonseed?


Hi Lavanya And Tanvi, I don't know about that information. But paruthi paal is one of the traditional drink in south Tamilnadu, also it's a very common drink. If you have any information regarding that means kindly send to me.

Hi thanks for sharing the recipe... I have tried it. But after adding karuppatti syrup the milk curdles... I don't know what mistake I made. Please help me.


Hi harini mam, sorry for the late reply, If the coconut milk is too thick and over boiled means, it will curdle the paruthi pal. But the karuppatti syrup will never curdle. Also thinai flour helps to thicken the mixture.
For you I prepared paruthi paal YouTube video, I hope It will helpful for u...
