Ammini Kozhukattai | Undrallu Sundal | Ganesh Chaturthi Recipes

Print Friendly and PDF

We usually prepare Undrallu Sundal with the left over dough of the modak(kudumulu) and also we make very less quantity to offer for Neivedyam on Vinayaka Chavithi as we prepare lot of other varieties too. Otherwise we usually make this as a snack for evening to enjoy it.During the season of Avarekalu(hyacinth beans) we prepare this with the tender hyacinth beans known as Avarekalu Kadubu which is really tasty. I had prepared this Undrallu Guggillu along with Pappulo Undrallu as the base for both the recipes are same.It is a very simple and delicious snack.

We call 'Undrallu Sundal' as 'Regi Undralla Guggillu' but as it is bit unusual name for many I named it with the most commonly known name - 'Ammini Kozhukattai' as it is called in Tamilnadu. The preparation process for this snack is really time consuming as the rolling of tiny balls takes lot of time and it would be easy to make in large quantity if you have some one to help.

Undrallu Sundal | Undralla Guggillu | Regi Undrallu Kadubu Recipe:
Serves 3-4
Prep time: 30 mins | Cooking time: 30 mins | Total time: 1 hr
Cuisine: South Indian | Category: Snacks/Accompaniments

for Rice Flour Marbles:
1 cup  Homemade Rice flour
2 cups water
2 tsp oil
1/2 tsp salt

for Seasoning:
1/2 cup grated fresh Coconut
1/4 cup chopped Coriander
 3-4 Green chillies, slit or 1 tsp Green Chilli Paste
2 Red chilies, broken
1-2 tsp Lemon Juice(or to taste)
1 tsp Mustard Seeds
1/2 tsp Cumin seeds
1 tbsp Chana dal
1 tsp Urad dal
2-3 tsp Oil
a pinch of Asafoetida
Salt to taste

to prepare Undrallu/Rice flour Balls:
  • In a vessel, add water, salt and oil and let it come to a boil.
  • After it boils, reduce the heat and add rice flour. At this point don't touch the rice flour, leave it as it is for exactly 15 mins over medium heat.
  • Switch off the flame and using a ladle mix it well until you get it into a smooth consistent dough (as shown in the picture). Once it cools a bit, you can use your hand at the end to knead into a smooth dough as shown in picture.
  • Take an empty vessel and apply oil on its base and edges.Take some dough in your hand, and using your fingers make small balls as shown in picture (the smaller the balls, the better the taste.it all depends on your patience).If the dough keeps sticking to you hand, smear little oil to your fingers to continue making the balls. This is the most time consuming process but the end product makes you forget all the pain you have taken while making it.
  • After you finish making all the balls, place the vessel in a pressure cooker without any lid on the vessel. Do sprinkle one or two tea spoons of oil on the top of the balls and steam it for 10-15 min without using a weight (like you would make idly).
  • Once the pressure drops open the cooker and place the vessel aside. You should be seeing shiny balls as shown in the picture.
to do Seasoning Part:
  • Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds and let them splutter and then add urad and chana dal until golden brown.
  • Now add cumin seeds, asafoetida, red chillies and green chillies (or green chili  paste).
  • Add rice balls from the vessel and mix it well in medium heat for about 5min.
  • Finally switch off the stove and add salt, lemon juice, grated coconut and cilantro and mix it well.
Serve it hot and enjoy the snack!

  • During the season of Avarekaalu(hyacinth beans), you can boiled Avarekalu to the tempering and fry nicely and follow the same process. It tastes nice.
  • You can even add 1-2 tbsp. Idli Milagai podi at the end and mix nicely for a more spicy version.
