Rice rava upma pidi kozhukattais /Dumplings

Raw rice rawa - 1 big cup
Urad dal - 1 1/2 tsps
Mustard seeds - 1 1/2 tsps
Dry red chillies - 3-4
Hing - 1/4 tsp
Curry leaves - few
Salt as required
Take a kadai pour oil in it and add mustard seeds,urad dal,dry red chillies, hing and curry leaves.
Now after the mustard seeds splutter add the rice rava and stir fry for 2-3 minutes
Add salt and mix nicely.
Add 3 measures of hot water to the rice rava and close it with a lid.
After 5 minutes open and stir the rava by turning it nicely.
You can even add some more oil to the mixture and mix nicely.
Now the raw rice upma is ready.
How to prepare upma kozhukattai:
After the upma gets lukewarm take some little by little in your hand and make balls by pressing with your fingers.
Now take the idli stand and place the balls one by one on the mould.
Now pour some water in the pressure cooker and place the idli stand inside with the balls
Let it steam for 20 minutes and then it will become solid.
Now you can put off the gas and remove the stand and keep aside.
The upma dumplings are ready to be eaten either with some chutney, sambar, or kathrikai puli gothsu which I shall post some time later.
