Arisi upma kozhakattai/savoury rice dumplings

       This has always been a favourite at my place when we were kids,however I had never tried making them. Thanks to the event and my choice of rice, I decided to blog this yummy recipe. I called back home for the recipe and couldn't believe that the preparation was so easy. We all enjoyed it for dinner yesterday. An ideal item when you have guests too.
upma kozhakattai

Ingredients-
Raw rice- 2cups(I used parboiled ponni rice)
Grated coconut-1cup
Green chillies- 4
curry leaves- few
Salt to taste
Water- 4cups
Mustard seeds-1tsp
Oil- 2tsp

Method-
With the help of mixer, break the rice to a consistency of coarse rava/sooji (grainy form-jada rava). Grind the coconut, green chillies and curry leaves.
Heat oil in huge pan. Add the mustard seeds. When it crackles, add the coconut mixture and salt and saute for a minute. Now add the water and allow it to boil. When it boils, add the broken rice.Combine well. Keep it covered with a lid and cook for around 15 minutes.Cook and stir till it turns into a thick mass. Allow it to cool. Then using your palms, make oval shaped kozhakattais with the cooked rice.
  Place them on greased idli moulds and steam them in a cooker(minus the weight if you are using pressure cooker.)Steam for around 10 minutes.(They appear a little glossy or have a typical shine after they are steamed)
Serve them warm with tomato kothsu or morkozhumbu. I served with some hot and spicy coconut chutney.

Notes- You can use idli rava directly instead of the regular raw rice as stated in this recipe.

This is similar to what we call undrallu, but we don't use coconut mixture. Yours looks delicious.

This is something of a comfort food for me....something I fall back on whenever I fall short of ideas for dinner.

I love arisi upma and my mom makes it really well. I love the crust on the bottom the best. We usually finish it off in theupma stage so it hardly transforms to kozhukattai :)
Very tempting...
