Uppu urundai.... a simple healthy breakfast

I love this breakfast option coz of its simplicity in taste and appearance too. My hubby is not a big fan of it though so I seldom make it. My mom makes it for me whenever I feel like having it as its a regular option for breakfast at theirs. I would say this would fall under healthy category as it uses very little oil and is steamed.... so everyone can enjoy guilt free

Rice batter is seasoned with a wonderful tadka and then steamed to perfection. It would serve good for breakfast as well as an evening snack. It is very filling too. Steaming hot they are perfect to taste

Serves... 4 ppl
Serve option... Hot

This is what u'll need...

Raw rice - 1/2 cup
Boiled rice - 1/2 cup
Mustard seeds - 1/4 tspn
Broken urad dal - 1/4 tspn
Chana dal - 1 tbspn
Red chillies - 2
Coconut - as needed
Oil - 1 tbspn
Salt to taste

Here is the stir....
  • Measure 1/2 cup of boiled rice and 1/2 cup of raw rice

  • Wash and soak rice in sufficient water for 3-4 hours

  • Put the rice in a mixie jar and blend it. Grind it into a slightly coarse batter adding sufficient water during grinding

  • Heat a pan and add a tablespoon of oil to it. Add mustard seeds, broken urad dal, chana dal to the oil
  • Once dal starts sizzling starts add curry leaves and broken red chillies
  • Chop coconut into bite side small pieces and toss it into the pan. You can use ass per your wish. I have used about 2 tablespoon of sliced coconut
  • Stir around for about 5-10 seconds. Pour batter into the pan
  • Add salt to taste
  • Stir and mix everything well. In a few seconds the batter will turn into a dough leaving the sides of the pan. Turn off the flame
  • While still warm, pinch out some dough and roll it into a lemon sized ball
  • Place the prepared balls into a greased idli mould
  • Steam this for about 10-12 minutes. Check for doneness by breaking one urundai and checking the center. If not done cook for abother 2 minutes. Dont cook long as it will turn hard and rubbery
  • Serve hot and enjoy with your family

                                          • Soak equal proportions of raw rice and boiled rice for soft urundais
                                          • Sliced coconut gives a nice bite when eating. If you dont like you can add grated coconut also
                                          • Dont steam for too long as they will turn hard
