Yummee Yummee Hot and Steamed Oondees of Mangalore (good diet breakfast for health conscious people)


Idli Rava - 250 gms

grated coconut - 1 small vati

Mustard Seeds - 1 tspn

Methi - little bit

Hing - 1/4 tsp

salt - as per taste

sugar - just a pinch as per taste

Kadipatta - a few sprigs

These days we dont have to soak rice and dry it and pound it ..into rava. Idli Rava is readily available.

Wash Idli Rava and keep it aside

Take a Kadai, add 1 tea spoon oil and once its heated.. Add Mustard seeds, Hing, Kadipatta and Methi seeds like how we give phanna..

Add Idili Rava and add little water to boil it , add grated coconut, sugar and salt and boil until it becomes semi solid..

Remove from gas the kadai and let it cool for a minute and take cool water in one bowl.. dip your hand in that cool water so that its easy to make undis and your hands wont get burnt...

After dipping your hand in cool water, take handful of ready undee peet and start making laddoos with a hole in the middle and undees should be medium shaped.. as per your liking

Now take an Atti and keep these undees and steam them for 20 to 25 mts..

So your undees are ready to eat with dry garlic chutney, or wet garlic chutney ...

It can be steamed in pressure cooker also provided you keep a vessel with wholes or some people tie in a thin towel (what they call panji towel in konkani)h and keep it steam so that it gets cooked from all sides.. I havent tried tying it in a thin towel and cooking

Vrinda Pachhi,

One small query. Can this be steamed in a pressure cooker instead of an atti?

Its nice that this that this almost forgotten delicious breakfast food is being revived. I am told, that this lovely dish from Kodial is not available in Kodial itself, which is very sad.
