Uppu/Ulundu Kozhakattai ( Steamed Modak made of Urad dal)

As a sequel to Sweet Kozhakattai posted earlier, here is Ulundu Kozhakattai, which is for those who don't love sweets.

Uppu/Ulundu kozhakattai (Urad dal Modak)

Ingredients :

Urad dal - 1/2 cup
Green chillies- 4
Coconut (grated) - 1/2 cup 
Hing/ Asafoetida - a pinch
Salt - 1/2 tsp (adjust to taste)

Method :

Soak Urad dal for 2 hours. Grind with green chillies, hing, salt and coconut.

Steam-cook as such.

Allow to cool, then divide into 12 even-sized modak fillings, as shown. Hold the steamed urad mixture between your fist to get the shape.

Make the outer covering as given in Sweet Kozhakattai recipe. Again, apply oil on your palms to make sure the rice flour mixture does not stick to your hands and you can make a smooth covering for the modaks.
Follow the same procedure and use this urad dal filling. Only the shape and the filling-ingredients differ, the method is pretty much alike.

Here are the modaks, ready to eat :)

Enjoy! :) This also makes a great breakfast menu, however requires about an hour for the modaks to be ready!
