Akki Unde/Oggarange unde/Tampered Rice Dumplings

This is a steam food and a south canara delicacy .There are mainly 2 verities of akki unde, pundi (Plain version) and oggarange unde(tampered version). You can customize this according to your taste. Some use stuffing for this and some create sweet version . I am posting basic version of Akki Unde.

You Need To Have:
1 cup rice(tindi akki)
1/4 cup grated coconut
1 tsp oil
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp black gram seeds
4-5 curry leaves
2-3 red chilies
salt to taste
2 cups of water

Method:
Wash rice and spread it thinly(see picture below) on a clean cloth such that water contents is evaporated.this would take around 1 hour.
Put the rice into mixer jar and grind rice to Rava idli texture without adding water and keep it aside.

Take a thick bottomed pan and heat oil. Add mustard seeds, black gram seeds , curry leaves and red chilies to it. once they start spluttering add water and bring it to boil.Add salt and grated coconut.
Slowly add rice rava to boiling water by continuously starring so that no lumps are formed. simmer and cook it until a firm dough(easy to make balls) is formed.stir in between so that dough is not burnt.

Make small ball from the dough (I do small impression in middle) and arrange them in traditional steam cooker.
Steam cook it for 40 mins. (If you don't have steam cooker, use pressure cooker without weight and put small glass instead)
Serve hot with onion chutney or any kind of sambar.
