Aaviri kudumulu

Bolo Ganesh Maharaj ki Jai!! We wish all of you and you families a great Ganesh Chaturthi. May the Vighnaharatha remove all the evils from our world and keep us happy.
Preparation time: 30 - 45 mins

Serves: 4


Rice flour
(biyyampindi) 2 cups (200 gms)
Refined cooking oil 1 ½ tbsp
Green gram (Moongdal/Pesara pappu) 1/4th cup (50gms)
Dry coconut (Copra/Endukobbari) 1/4th cup (50gms)
Sugar 1/4th cup (50gms)
Cardamom 2
Pinch of salt


Wash and pressure-cook the green gram to one whistle. Alternatively, cook the green gram on medium heat until soft for around 10 mins.

Boil 1 cup water. To 2 cups rice flour, add the cooking oil, salt and hot water. Mix to dough of chapatti dough consistency. Cover and set aside.

To 1 cup sugar add 1/4th cup water (in this case, 1/16th cup of water) and keep stirring on medium heat to make a sugar syrup.

To the sugar syrup, add the cooked green gram and continue stirring to a thick a lump. Add the dry and grated coconut, crushed/powdered cardamoms and mix. Remove from heat.

Take small lumps of dough and bail to circles ala pooris. Place the stuffing in the centre and fold to a hemisphere-roll. Press the edges to completely close the roll. Twist the edges as we twist a twine. Repeat the procedure and make all the rolls ready to steam.

Apply oil to a vessel/Shallow dish/plate, place the kudumulu at equal-distance from each other, place the dish/plate into water-filled (up to quarter level) cooker/ large vessel and steam for 10 mins on medium heat.

Aaviri kudumulu or Steamed kudumus are done. Feed Ganesha with his favorite food and pray for a prosperous and peaceful world.
