Step 1

For preparing mutta mala, boil water and sugar in a pan.

Step 2

Beat the egg yolks and add it through a small hole in the coconut shell so that it falls like a thread in the boiling water. Move your hands in circular motions.

Step 3

Pour it continuously until the egg yolk in the shell has been used up.

Step 4

By this time the yolk will be cooked. Reduce the heat and remove it without breaking it.

Step 5

Drain the excess syrup well before putting it in the plate. For Kinnathappam - Beat the egg whites well. And then add the leftover mutta mala syrup (sugar syrup) to this. Beat well. Add cardamom powder. Steam cook in a bowl. Cut into diamond shape when cooled and place above mutta maala.


This Muttamala picture looks below average. It doesnt look like actual mutta mala
