Kozhakattai or Indian dumpling

Raw rice - 1 cup
Tuvar dal - 1/4 cup
Red chillies - 3
Curry leaves
Urad dal - 1/4 teaspoon
Mustard seeds - 1/4 teaspoon
Coconut - 1/4 cup shredded
Oil - 2 teaspoon

Dry grind rice and tuvar dal in a mixer. Keep oil in pan, add urad dal, curry leaves, red chillies and mustard seeds. When the mustard splutters, pour water in the ratio of 1 rice : 2 water. Add salt in the water and let it come to a boil. Once it boils, add the dry mixture and the shredded coconut and keep stirring continuously so as to not form lumps. Cover with lid and cook in very low flame. When it is cooked, take it out and make small dumplings or kozhakkattai and keep in idli cooker for 5 minutes.

This is a healthy diet and goes well with coconut chutney combination.

Surely it's no coincidence that the word "listen" is an anagram of the word "silent".
