Rice Dumpling - Arisi Kozhukattai

#RiceDumpling from leftover dough of Modhakam.
Some quantity of the dough of modhakam was leftover. I made a spicy dumpling after adding coconut scrap, peanuts, red chilly powder and other condiments.
Here is the recipe.


Ingredients :
1/2 cup                                  Modhakam dough
[OR
1/2 cup                                 Rice flour ]
2 Tbsp                                  Soft Oats
2 Tbsp                                  Coconut scrap
2 Tbsp                                  Peanut, break into pieces
1 Tbsp                                  Gram dhal
1/4 Tsp                                Asafoetida
1/2 Tsp                                Mustard seeds
7 - 10                                  Curry leaves, chop nicely    
1 or 2                                  Red chilly, break into pieces
1/4 Tsp                                Red chilly powder [ optional ]
1/4 Tsp                                Salt [ optional ]
1 Tsp                                  Oil

Method :
Heat a kadai on a stove with oil over a medium flame.
Splutter mustard seeds and then add red chilly pieces, gram dhal and peanut.
Roast until dhal turns golden color.
Now add curry leaves, asafoetida and red chilly powder [ if taken ].
Turn off the stove and transfer all roasted ingredients on to the leftover modhakam dough.

Then add oats and salt.
Knead well with hands. If needed sprinkle some water and prepare a tight dough.

Now dough is ready and it has to be steamed.
Heat an idly maker with 3 cups of water on a stove over a HIGH flame.
Grease the idly plate/steamer plate and arrange pressed dough with hands over it.


Place the idly plate/steamer plate with dumpling inside the idly maker.
Steam the dumpling for 5 - 7 minutes.

Check whether it has been cooked well by taking out a dumpling.
Transfer into a serving bowl.

Spicy nutty tasty rice dumplings are ready!!



Serve hot with tomato chutney or tomato sauce.



Note :
[ If rice flour is taken transfer all roasted ingredients to the flour.
Add oats and salt.
Then add warm water little by little and prepare a tight dough. Then make dumpling by pressing small small balls in hand. Then proceed as above. ]
