Jeelakarra Kudumulu

Days pass by and I wonder how engaged from dawn to dusk my lil brat keeps me. Ultimately there's lil to no time to blog hop, whereas cooking happens at a fast pace but the entire saga of plating the dish, picturing, uploading and writing kinda doesnt happen. Today after almost humpty number of tries I finally caught hold of the dish to picture but I am not really happy about how it turned out. After all delibrations I put back the fact that I wasnt happy with picture and started writing.

Jeelakarra Kudumulu is our all time fave, I love this dish and usually we have it with Ghee, Banana and Sugar. Pretty commonly made as dinner. Kudumulu means oblong shape in Telugu, more dhal in the dish makes it tastier too. Coconut can be added to the dish before making the oblong shape and then steam cook it.



Ingredients:

To make a coarse Powder:

Raw Rice - 1 cup
Channa Dhal - 1/4 cup
Toor Dhal - 1/2 cup
Pepper Corn - 1 1/2 tbsp
Cumin Seeds - 1 tbsp

For Tempering:

Sesame Oil - 3 tbsps
Mustard Seeds - 1/4 tbsp
Channa Dhal - 1/2 tbsp
Curry Leaves a few
Onion - 1 medium sized chopped
Green Chilly - 2 nos.
Red Chilly - 1 no.
Water - 3 1/2 cups
Salt to taste



Method:

1. In a blender add Pepper Corns, Cumin Seeds, Channa Dhal and Toor Dhal make a coarse powder. Some of dhal (both) can remain whole. Set it aside and blend the Raw Rice and mix with the Dhal.

2. In a pan heat Oil, throw in the Mustard Seeds when they pop add the Channa Dhal and let it turn color then put in the chopped Onions, Green Chillies, Red Chilly and Curry Leaves, cook for a few mins or until the Onions become transparent.

3. Now measure and pour in the Water and let it boil then add the Rice & Dhal mixture adjust Salt and cook until Water is completely absorbed.

4. Let it cool, take large lemon sized balls and make oblong/oval shapes out of it and place them in a cooker plate (Idli Plate) or steamer plate and cook.

5. Let it cool and serve it warm.

Note:

1. If Idli Plates are used place them in a cooker with Water and cook until steam gushes out of the pressure cooker. Do not use weight while using pressure cooker.

2. While shaping the kudumulu, press them hard and make them firm or they will fall apart after steam cooked.

Serve with: Dollop of Ghee, Banana and Sugar
