Pidi Kozhukattai

This week I am paired with Vardhini for my 7 th recipe for Blogging Marathon#6 group 2. I have chosen this Pidi Kozhukattai from her space for my mini bite theme. A very healthy snack We also make this in Andhra as uppu undrallu. this is a special dish for vinayaka chaviti at my place.I made a small change to Vardhini's recipe. In her recipe she gave 3 tab sp toor dal I didn't use

that other then that I
didn't change any thing.Here I go with the recipe....

Rice ---- 1&1/2 cup
Toor dal(split pegion peas) --- 3 tab sp(optional)
Cumin seeds --- 1 tea sp
Mustard seeds --- 1/2 tea sp
Uread dal --- 1 tea sp
Channa dal --- 1 tea sp
Dry red chilli s ---3 broken
Asafoetida --- one pinch
curry leaves --- 1 spring
Salt ---- 1 tea sp
Coconut --- 1 tab sp grated
Water ---3 cups
1.Wash rice and dal(if using dal I didn't use dal) separately drain the water and dry on a cloth in the shade for 1 hour.
2.Grind rice and dal coarsely like upma rava(semolina).
If you like to use toor dal then first grind dal and cumin seeds. I didn't use dal so I added cumin seeds in the seasoning(tadka).
3.Heat oil in a thick bottom pan add mustard seed let them popup then add urad dal,channa dal,broken dry red chillis,curry leaves,asafoetida and fry for a while and add 3 cups of water.
4.Add grated coconut, salt keep the heat in high and bring to a full boil.
5.Now reduce the heat to low, slowly add rice rava and dal rava(if using)keep stirring till the mixture thickens and looks like half cooked upma.
6.Remove from the heat and let it cool till you can hold the mixture in your hands.
7.Now wet you hands, take a small portion from the mixture and shape it in to Kozhukattai or you can give a round shape like me.
8.spread this balls in a cooker vessel,cook in steem
for 15 minutes.
Serve with coconut chutney I can have them with out any side dish or chutney.
