Steamed Rice Dumplings



Mudha kudumu3
Decoration: Placed the paper lilies that I made recently :)

Steamed Rice dumpling, as a name might sound new and complicated.. But its our very own traditional dish called mudha kudumulu(In Telugu) or Pidi Kolukattai(In Tamil).

Its a super tasty and harmless food that you can consume without any restrictions. :)


Mudha kudumu2

Ingredients:

Raw rice - 1 cup
Bengal gram dhall - 1 tbl sp
Green gram dhall - 1 tbl sp
Coconut - 1 tblsp
Water - 2 1/2 cup
Salt - for taste


Mudha kudumu


Method:

Soak the rice in water for 10 min, drain it and dry the rice on a clean cloth. Now powder it coarsely(Like rava).

Soak bengal gram dhall and green gram dhall in water for min 1 hour.

Dilute the powdered rice in a cup of water and keep it aside. Boil the remaining 1 1/2 cups of water and add the soaked dhalls, salt and the diluted rice mixture and blend well. Cook for ten min, till it becomes thick. Once done allow it to cool down for a while.

Now greese your hands with oil, and make lemon sized balls of the cooked mixutre and press them with your hand to flatten them slightly. Then place them on a well greased plate(you can use idly plate) and steam cook the balls for 20 min.

Steamed rice cakes are ready to eat. :)

It goes best with Urad dhall chutney or sugar.
