Rice Balls Bean Sundal :)
Sundal is a super good south Indian snack item. Navarathiri celebrations are well known for the varieties of sundal that people make for the deity. :)
This rice ball bean sundal is my all time favorite. I love it for the tangy taste of it.
The rice flour balls are a dish by itself that would absolutely attract the kids. The shape and the salty taste of it would be the best of most. :)
Field Bean(Mochai) - 1 cup
Rice flour - 1 cup
Water - 1 1/4 cups
Green Chilly - 5
Coconut - 1 tbsp
Mustard - 1/2 tsp
Asafoetida(perungayam) - a pinch
Salt - for taste
Lemon extract - 1 tsp
Cook bean in pressure pan and keep it aside.
Boil 1 1/4 cups of water adding a little salt to it. When it boils, simmer the flame and add the rice flour stirring it constantly. See to it that it does not form lumps. Now switch off the flame and leave the vessel closed for around ten min. Then sprinkle some water over it and kneed the dough to make it smooth.
Roll it into small balls and place them on a well greased plate and pressure cook it for 15 min.
These white rice balls alone can be the best snack for kids.
Now grind coconut, green chillies, asafoetida and salt together.
Take a pan and add 2 spoons of oil to it and crackle the mustard. Add the curry leaves, cooked bean and the ground paste to it and fry for a while. Now add the white rice flour balls to it and saute for two min. Finally add lemon extract and coriander leaves to it and saute well.
Rice balls bean sundal is ready to serve. :)
I am sending this recipe to Shruthi's Steamed treats event. :)
