Uppu Urundai is a quick and easy steamed South Indian breakfast recipe that is made with minimal ingredients. This no-fuss recipe can be made on any day without too much advance planning, though you need to have an hour to soak the rice.
If you do not have much time in the morning, you can even soak and grind the rice the previous night and keep it in the fridge. Bring it to room temperature in the morning and then proceed with the rest of the recipe.
Tempered with mustard seeds, red chillies and curry leaves, these steamed balls are very tasty with a pleasant, mildly-spiced flavour. Make sure you serve it immediately after steaming to enjoy the soft texture.
