Upma Kozhukattai (Steamed rice balls)

Here is a simple and healthy breakfast/dinner recipe.

1. Idly rava - 1 cup
2. Oil - 2 tablespoons
3. Urad dhal - 1 teaspoon
4. Channa dhal - 1 teaspoon
5. Asafoetida - a pinch
6. Red chilies - 2 to 3 
7. Grated coconut - 2 tablespoons
8. Salt - to taste
9. Curry leaves - 5 to 6
10. Mustard seeds - 1/2 teaspoon

1. Heat oil in a pan and season it with mustard seeds
2. Once it splutters, add urad dhal, channa dhal and fry well until it turns golden brown
3. Add hing, red sillies, curry leaves, grated coconuts and saute for couple of minutes
4. Add 3 cups of water and required salt and bring it to boil
5. Once the water boils well, simmer the stove and add the idly rava slowly and keep mixing. At this stage, it is likely to form lumps, so you need to mix continuously
6. Once the rava is cooked nicely switch off the store. Now the upma is ready. You can have this as a dish by itself
7. Now let this cool completely
8. For the next step, fill the idly cooker with about 1 inch of water and bring it to the stove
9. Meanwhile start making small balls with the upma and place them on the idly plates and steam it for about 5 to 6 minutes
10. Remove it from the flame and serve it hot with any chutney

1. You can dry roast idly rava for 3 to 4 minutes in little oil to make it cook faster
2. Once you make the upma kozhukattai, you can dust them in idly podi for additional flavor
