  • 1 cup Broken Rice or Rice Rava
  • 2 tbsp Bengal Gram
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • Oil or Ghee
  1. Begin by taking a pan and adding 2 cups of water, 1/2 tsp of salt, and 2 tbsp of Bengal gram. Allow the water to come to a rolling boil.
  2. Once the water is bubbling, add 1 cup of broken rice while gently stirring to prevent any lumps from forming. Continue to cook for 2-3 minutes over low heat.
  3. Close the lid of the pan and turn off the stove once the mixture thickens. Let it sit for a relaxing 5 minutes.
  4. Afterward, transfer the mixture onto a plate.
  5. Now, dampen your hands slightly, and with a small portion of the cooked mixture, start rolling it into bite-sized balls.
  6. Our next step is steaming. First, spread a thin layer of ghee or oil on a plate.
  7. Carefully place the prepared Kudumulu on the plate.
  8. In a steamer or a pan, pour some water and insert the plate onto a stand. Seal the lid tightly and steam for a satisfying 10-12 minutes.
  9. Your delectable Kudumulu, the steamed rice balls, are now ready to be served!
These delightful kudumulu or steamed rice balls are not only delicious but also make for a perfect addition to your festive spread. Enjoy!
