  • How to Make Aaviri Kudumu (Steamed Urad Dal Dumplings):

    1. Soak urad dal for 3 hours, grind it with some water to a fluffy paste (it should be like fine rawa paste, but not like idli batter)

    3. Heat water in idli cooker, put big lemon size balls of urad dough in idli plates, press them with wet hands to form round discs and steam for 7 to 8 min (when you touch the dumpling with wet hands, it should not be sticky).
