This recipe is an authentic recipe made by my grandma.She'll prepare this for special occasions.We enjoyed a lot on those days and that was my sweet memories with my grandma.But she prepared this dish with kadalai(channa gram dal).I tried the recipe with kollu(horse gram dal).It needs only 3 ingredients and simple to make,we can enjoy a delicious snack.
I made this for shhh..... secret recipe challenge by priya.I paired with poornima porchelvan from http://www.poornimacookbook.com/.She has given me Rice and Kollu.I hated to prepare a regular rice dish so I decided to try my grandma's recipe with kollu.
Kollu(Horse gram)-1 cup
Raw Rice-1/2 cup
If you wish you can add cardamom powder a pinch
Soak Rice for 1/2 an hr.Grind them with some water to a fine paste.And place a steamer on stove and grease a tray with oil or place a pure thin cloth on that tray or bowl.pour the batter into the bowl and steam them like idlies for 10-15 mins.
In a meanwhile dry roast kollu till it changes a slight color and grind them with jaggery in the mixer.My grandma will grind it in mortar and pestel.Then add in the idlies and grind well.They'll make like a paste now roll them into small balls and enjoyyy the treat...
