This is a very new dish to me. I saw this in a cooking show. Even though it is a tedious process it is worth the effort. It is a tasty and healthy dish.

- 1 cup Boiled rice
- 1/4 cup Moong dhal
- 1/4 cup Shredded coconut
- Salt to taste

 To temper

- 1 tsp Mustard seeds
- few curry leaves
- 1 tsp Cumin seeds
- Red chillie powder to taste
- 1 tbsp Oil


1. Soak rice for 2 hours. Grind the rice with salt in a blender. It should be little thicker than dosa consistency and the mixture has to be coarse.
2. Boil moong dhal separately.
3. Add oil in a frying pan. Once the oil is hot add the batter. Mix it well until it comes together and it should not stick to the pan.This procedure is similar to the way you prepare kozhkattai outer cover.
3. Let it cool down for few minutes. Grease your hands with oil. Take a small lime size dough. Roll it into a cylindrical shape. Check the photo to see how I have rolled the dough.
4. Boil the rolled dough in a idli plate for approximately 10 minutes. The color will change once it has cooked. So check that and adjust the time.
5. Take the boiled dough out and once its cooled, cut it into small pieces.
6. Add oil to a frying pan. Add mustard seeds,cumin seeds. Once it splutters add the boiled dough. Mix it well and then add red chillie powder.
7. After 3-4 minutes add the boiled moong dhal, coconut, curry leaves and mix it well.
8. Turn off the stove.

You can serve this with sambar. We ate it without any side dish and it was very yummy.
