UPMA KOZHUKATTAI

STEAMED RICE DUMPLINGS- Using idli rava.

Upma kozhukattai is a easy and healthy dish which is usually made for evening tiffin or dinner at out place. Though my kids doesn’t prefer this very much now a days they started liking this and so i am making this once a week. Usually we make as the same procedure of Arisi Upma but addition of toor dal is opt ional in upma kozhukattai. But sometimes my mom add moong dal also which i like in upma kozhakattai.

Recently i have started trying this with Idli rava which we can easily find in Indian grocery stores. If not you can wash raw rice and  drain the water and spread in a cloth for 15 minutes to 1/2 an hour inside the home and pulse it in a mixer to get the coarse rava.
INGREDIENTS:(YIELDS APPROX 25 NO.)

IDLI RAVA 2 CUPS
WATER 5 CUPS
YELLOW MOONG DAL 2-3 TBLSP
CUMIN SEEDS 1 TSP
BLACK PEPPER 3/4 TSP
COCONUT GRATED 2-3 TBLSP(OPTIONAL)
RED CHILLI 2 NO
OIL 3 TSP
MUSTARD SEEDS 1/2 TSP
PEANUTS 2 TBLSP(OPTIONAL)
CURRY LEAVES FEW
ASAFOETIDA 2 PINCHES
SALT AS NEEDED

  • Mix well without any lumps.
  • Let the flame be in medium.
  • Stir well.

  • When the water gets absorbed completely switch off the flame.
  • When the mixture becomes warm and can handle the heat with your palms start making round shaped balls or oblong shapes.
  • Steam in a greased idli maker for 8- 10 minutes.

  • Serve hot with any chutney .

Note:

  • Do not leave the cooked idli rava mixture open for a long time else it will become dry and end up in hard and dry kozhukattais.
  • Make it when it is warm.
  • Grease you hands with a few drops of coconut oil while making balls.
  • Do not steam this more than 12 minutes else the kozhukattais will become hard and break while taking out.

Ria Idli rava if you want to make at home Wash rice(normally we use sona masooririce that is raw rice, but if you don't get this in ur place use the normal rice u use for cooking )and dry this on shade and pulse it in a mixer till u get the texture of Sooji. Please refer my Arisi upma post for more details.

I have a question on Rava: Moong Dal mix ratio
Is it 1: 2 or 2: 1 ?

Reply
admin March 27, 2013 - 3:33 am

It is not 2:1 or 1:2 just add 2 tblsp of moong dal for 2 cups of rava

No idli rava is different.It is made of rice. It takes little more time to cook.

Shouldn't the ratio be 2:1:5? 2 rava, 1 moong dal mixture ,5 water.

Reply
Jeyashris Kitchen January 25, 2019 - 10:12 am

In our home we don't add moong dal more, it's always just 2-3 tblsp.
