Arusi upma kozhakatai (steamed ricemeal balls)

Upma Kozhakatai is steamed ricemeal balls with some seasonings and coconut. It is simple to prepare but yummy to eat. It is usually served with coconut chutney or brinjal gotsu. It is one of the famous dish of Tamil Nadu.

Recipe ingredients:
1 cup idli rava (It is nothing but the rice coarsely grinded without water)
For seasoning:
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Split urad dal - 1 tsp
Channa dal - 1 tsp
Curry leaves
Red chilli - 3-4
Coconut scrapings - 1/4 cup
Salt to taste

In a kadai, heat oil, add the ingredients of seasoning. After it is done, add 3 cups of water. Add salt and coconut scrapings. Bring the water to rolling boil. Keep the flame in sim and add the rava little by little. Keep mixing it so that there are no lump formation. Mix till all the water gets absorbed and it should not stick to your fingers. Allow it to cool for 4-5 mins. Dont cool it too much otherwise it will be difficult for you to make the balls. Take a handful of the upma. Make either round or oval shapped balls. Steam it for around 10 mins.
Serve hot with chutney. Enjoy!
