Nuchina Unde (Broken rice balls)
This is a simple and easy to prepare dish that can be savored with pudina (Mint) chutney. Ingredients needed:
1. Broken Rice - 1 large cup
2. Water - 2 and half large cups
3. Dill leaves - about 1 large cups
4. Carrot - 2
5. Peas - 1/2 large cup
6. Salt to taste
Grate the carrot and finely chop the Dill leaves and set aside.
Roast the broken rice in a roasting pan till it the grains turn white.
In a separate pan, boil the water and add grated carrots, peas and dill leaves and boil for 10 minutes.
Add roasted broken rice and salt to taste and stir on low flame.
Once all the water is absorbed by broken rice, turn off the flames and make round balls of about 5 cms radius of the rice.
Make the ball slightly flat by pressing it between your palms.
Keep them in an idly cooker and steam for about 10 minutes.
