Navarathri 2014 recipes

Thursday, September 27, 2007

This recipe, I learnt from my mother and we call this dish as neer urundai and I have heard some people name this as uppurundai. Anyway here is the method by which I make.

Ingredients

  • Idly Rice ----- 1 1/2 cup
  • Coconut ----- 1/2 cup
  • salt & water--- as needed

Method

  • Soak Idly rice for 3 hours.
  • Grind to a batter just like we grind for Idly/dosa ,then add salt and coconut ,mix well.
  • Heat a heave bottomed vessel or Kadai and pour this batter.

  • Keep on Stirring, till the batter turns to dough consistency.
  • The consistency will be like,the dough is not much sticky if you make balls with your hands.
  • After the dough cools down,it will not be sticky.
  • Make small sized balls (sedai sized) using the dough.Keep aside.

  • In another large vessel boil water and add these balls in two batches(water should be enough to immerse these balls).
  • First add one portion of balls to water, cover with lid.
  • Cook covered for 5-6 minutes.(Keep the lid a little open to avoid over flowing when it starts boiling)
  • To check if the balls has been cooked or not,if u take out a ball and put it on a plate from little high,the ball should bounce a little. If its not cooked, it wont be bouncing.
  • By simply looking at the balls you can understand that the rice balls are cooked or not.There will be a colour change.
  • Carefully take out the balls little by little,straining the water.
  • I use idly cooker for cooking these balls.
  • Don't add water more than half of the vessel which ever vessel you use, as it boils it will over flow.
  • Cook the second batch of balls in the same manner.
  • The balls will be soft and tasty that it can be ate as such.
  • Don't waste the water, its consistency would now be like kanji(thick), so you can add jaggery and cardamom powder to it and boil for 2 minutes and add a little milk and have as a drink!
  • You can also add simply salt and butter milk to that water remaining and have it as a drink!

Or else you can also try the following:

PEPPER JEERA RICE BALLS

For that you need

Pepper ------- 1 tsp

Jeera -------- 1 tsp

curry leaves ----- 1 spring

Ghee ------------ 1 tsp

Method:

  • Crush pepper and jeera coarsely.
  • Heat ghee in a kadai and add pepper jeera powder followed by curry leaves.
  • Then after some 30 seconds add these rice balls and mix gently so that the pepper jeera coats these balls.
  • Serve hot!


The above measurements will serve 2 people.
