Srivilliputtur is famous for Palkova (Milk sweet). Palkova is made from boiling milk with sugar and is essentially sweetened condensed milk.

Alternatively there is also a similar sweet named Paal halwa. But, I don't know the difference.
Tirunelveli is famous for Halwa and that too halwa from Iruttu kadai (means dark shop). The shop is situated near Nellaiyapar temple. It is at East Car St, Thirunagar, Tirunelveli. Hot and Ghee-ful
Adhirasam is similar to a Vadai in shape but its a sweet. Its the usual diwali sweet in Tamil Nadu and also served in many of the temple sweet stall. Made using jaggery.
Paniyaaram comes from 'Chettinaadu' cuisine which is famous in Tamil Nadu. It is available in two varieties Sweet Paniyaaram and Kaara Paniyaaram. Visit places around Karaikudi to taste Paniyaarams. Made using palm sugar or jaggery.
Seeyam is made from dal and sugar balls coated with rice and urad dal batter and fried in oil. Best bet is to check for seeyam in Boli stalls at Chennai.
Paal -Milk Bun
Available around Madurai and neighboring places mostly south Tamil Nadu, Paal Bun is a delicious snack sold at tea stalls. This is my favorite snack too. Its the equivalent of glazed donuts, that are available in the US, but harder than the Donuts.
Made with Semolina, cashews, milk and cardamoms. Its also a diwali sweet. Though its available in the shops, best is the homemade ones.
