Uppu Urundai ( Steamed Rice Dumplings)

Uppu urundai is a healthy snack.My mom used to prepare and give it for us ,when we return from school.Since this is steamed ,it can be considered as a guilt free snack.We can have it with any chutney,but I prefer to have it simply.My mom reminded this recipe,when she came here and prepared it.This dish gave me some nostalgic memories.

For grinding :
1.Parboiled rice - 1 cup
2.Water             - as required

For tempering:
1.Oil                  -     1 tbsp
2.Mustard seeds -     1/4 tsp
3.Urad dal          -       1/2 tsp
4.Chana dal         -     1/2 tsp
5.Red chillies        -    5
6.Curry leaves      -    few
7.Cilantro             -    few

* Wash and soak the rice for 2 to 3 hours.
* Drain the water and grind it ,like idli batter.Let the batter be bit coarse..
* Take a pan,add oil and splutter with tempering ingredients except cilantro.
* Now add the grinded rice batter and mix it.

* Keep the stove in medium,the batter will start getting firm as shown in the picture.
* Turn off the stove,when the mixture is non sticky .
* We can also check the consistancy by taking it in hand and it should be rounded into a ball.
* Add cilantro and mix it.
* Cool the mixture completely.After 10 mins,roll the mixture into small balls.
* Steam the rice dumplings in a idli cooker.
* Serve with any chutney.
