JOnna Undrallu / Cholam Mani or Ammini Kozhukattai/ Sorghum Flour Mini savory Balls


I was away from blog for many months. Though was clicking some pictures, I was not updating. May be as I had a very busy summer with house full of guests for 2 months around a dozen :D.  After everyone left I felt  very lazy to kick start to post when one day I saw Priya’s status in FB asking to join the Sunday brunch event. Without any thought I just replied that I am in as it was the best time to wake up my blog and also to join in an event.  When I was looking at my pictures as what to post an idea came up to post an appropriate one for the festival. We usually make this undrallu very often for snack and also with many twists loved by all. It is very easy and also very healthy. Try it out for a change and you will not be disappointed.

Jowar Flour/ Sorghum Flour – 1 cup

Salt – as needed

Oil – 2 tsp( preferably gingelly oil)

Mustard seeds -  very little

Urad dhal – very little

Asafoetida – 2 pinch

Red Chillies – 3 or 4 broken

Curry leaves - few

Grated coconut – 2 tbsp

Take a bowl  with the flour, add salt and a tsp of oil. Mix well and slowly add hot water and make a soft dough. It should not be very had or very watery. When pressed with your fingers/fist it should nost stick but easily go in. Apply a drop of oil in your palm and pinch a piece of dough and make small balls, as small as you can so that it will cook easily and also very easy to bite. Prepare balls with all the dough and place in a steaming plate and steam for 15 mts in a pressure pan without weight or in a idli cooker or anything else that you steam with. Remove and keep aside.

Heat remaining oil in a pan and when hot add mustard seeds, urad dhal and asafoetida . When it splutters up add broken red chilies and curry leaves. Stir once or twice and add in steamed balls and grated coconut. Mix well and serve. Can have this as a meal or snack.
