Doodh Puli Pithe

17 January, 2013

Doodh Puli Pithe

"Doodh puli " is another famous pithe of Bengal prepared during Poush Sankranti. This sweet delicacy has an outer shell made of rice flour in a half moon shape and stuffed with coconut- jaggery filling. Then they are steamed and eaten with liquid date palm jaggery or boiled in milk. The  date palm jaggery is really tasty and has a beautiful aroma. It is available only during the winter season. I have already shared the recipe of patishapta and here comes the delicious doodh puli. (And don't forget to comment or subscribe !! :D)

Doodh Puli Pithe


  • Coconut - 1 (grated)
  • Date palm jaggery - 300 gms
  • Rice flour - 11/2 cup 
  • All purpose flour - 1/2 cup
  • Milk - 1 litre
  • Cardamom powder - 1 tsp
  • Mawa- 1/2 cup


1. Heat a pan and add rice flour, water and little salt. Stir for 4-5 mins. till it becomes a dough like mixture. Remove from heat and add little flour and knead once again to make a dough.
2. In a pan, add 200 gms of jaggery. When it melts add the grated coconut and cardamom powder and keep on stirring constantly till it turns dry and sticky. Keep aside. The filling is ready.
3.. Make small balls from the dough. Flatten each ball in the palm making a cavity and fill with 1 tbsp of filling    Fold it and seal the edges so that the filling does not come out in the shape of a" puli."
4. Boil the milk for sometime and keep on stirring so that it reduces to half. Now add the prepared pulis in the thickened milk and boil for 10- 15 mins and stir nicely. Add mawa to the doodh-puli mixture.
5. Remove from heat. When it cools a little add the remaining date palm jaggery and serve the delicious "doodh pulis" hot or cold. N'joy!
