UPMA URUNDAI

Last weekend i was breaking my head thinking about wat to prepare for dinner.Finally i asked my hubby what he wanted to have. He told me to prepare upma urundai and also he said its been a very long time we prepared this.Yes , I agreed i totally forgot about this dish.Immediately i gave a call to my MIL for the recipe and made it. It was tasting soft  and excellent. Thanks to my hubby for reminding this yummy tiffin.Also i've got a different recipe to share with u all  :)

upma urundai1

INGREDIENTS :

  • Raw rice - 1 cup
  • Toor dal - 1/4 cup
  • Water - 2 cups

To temper :

  • Cooking oil - 1 tbsp
  • Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
  • Urad dal - 1/2 tsp
  • Asafetida /Hing - 1/4 tsp
  • Green chilly - 1 no ( cut into two)
  • Ginger - 1 inch piece ( cut into small pieces)
  • Curry leaves - A few

Salt & water - as needed.

METHOD:

  • Soak the rice and toor dal together for two hours.
  • Coarse grind the rice & dal mixture in a mixie. Run the mixie only once.(Please do not grind for more time) The rice & dal should be just broken.
  • Now in a broad kadai , temper all the items given above in the same order.
  • Add 2 cups of water and the required salt.Allow it to boil.Now add the ground rice mixture.Mix well for sometime without forming lumps.Let it thicken.
  • The rice absorbs all the water and becomes a non sticky dough.
  • Let it cool down. Now grease the idly plate with little oil. Make balls out of the dough and arrange it in the greased idly plate.Steam the balls for 10-15 mins.

Soft , hot upma urundai is ready to serve. We enjoyed with the sambhar i made for lunch. U can have it with any chutney. Sometimes this can be made as a evening snack without any accompaniment.
