Undrallu

Vundrallu
Undrallu are one of the Vinayaka Chaviti specials. They are also known as Kudumulu in some places. They are made with rice ravva and chana dal. You can prepare them in two methods, I will give both ways below - you can choose the best method that fits you. 

Undrallu Ingredients:

Rice ravva - 1 Cup
Chana dal - 1/8 Cup 
Water - 2 1/4 Cups
Ghee/Oil - 1/2 tsp
Salt

Pan Method:
  1. Wash and soak chana dal for 30 mins in 1/4th cup water. do NOT drain it.
  2. In a narrow pan like sauce pan, add oil/ghee and soaked chana dal with water and 2 more cups of water. Let it boil until chana dal is 3/4th cooked.
  3. Now add rice ravva and stir well so there are no lumps. Add salt and when this is boiling, cover with lid and let it cook under minimum flame for about 10 mins.
  4. Open the lid and check if the ravva is cooked well by taking little amount with fingers and pressing it. If this is soft, its done. If you still have ravva nature, cook for around 5 more mins.
  5. Remove the cooked mixture into a big plate or container and allow it to cool for about 10 mins or until you can touch with your palms.
  6. Now take a palm full of cooked ravva into your palms and make into balls pressing with your two hands.
Tip: Put a bowl of water beside you to wet your hands frequently while making the balls. Wetting hands while making each ball prevents the rava sticking to your hands while pressing them.

Pressure cooker Method:
  1. Take rice ravva , chana dal, salt, oil and water into a cooker bowl and pressure cook as you cook the rice.
  2. When pressure is all gone, remove bowl from cooker and allow it to cool in a big plate or container and make them into balls. 
That's it. Undrallu  are ready to put naivedyam to the Lord Ganapati or Lakshmi.
