Posted by Veena Karanth at 09:14:00
Undlika is a traditional and a recipe from the good old days where, many might not even have heard about it. It is usually prepared during ganesha festival, where we prepare both spicy and sweet undlikas. Basically it is a dish prepared out of rice and seasoned with green chillis and other spices for the spicier version. Today, I will be posting the spicier version of it. The common version of preparing this recipe is by using the rice flour as a basic ingredient, but in my house, my mother and grand mother used to prepare these undlikas by grinding the rice and steaming the same. Of course, it is a cumbersome method but the result is very tasty and amazing. In Tamil Nadu, it is known as ammini kozukattai and in Andra Pradesh, it is called undralla guggillu but anyway names do not matter where only the taste counts.

KitchenMasti Points.

  1. See to it that the ground rice does not stick to your fingers after stirring . This indicates that the mixture is properly cooked.
  2. You may grease your fingers with oil while rolling out the balls.
  3. As I have mentioned earlier, you may even use rice flour instead of raw rice.
  4. I have used coconut oil for seasoning but you are free to use any variety of your choice.
  5. The consistency of the ground rice batter should resemble to that of Neer Dosa Batter. ( pouring consistency ).
