How to Make Rail Palaharam

  • For the masala: Grind together soaked moong dal, coconut, ginger, green chillies, jeera, coriander, curry leaves, lime juice and salt to a thick paste.
  • Avoid using water. Keep this aside.
  • Meanwhile boil 2 cups of water with 1/2 tsp of salt.
  • Add the rice flour and immediately remove from the fire.
  • Mix with a spoon, cover and keep this aside to cool off.
  • Once this is cool enough, knead it into a dough, make 1/2 cms thick long cylinders and steam cook these.
  • Once the cylinders are cooked and have become cool, cut them into small 1/4 inch pieces and keep aside.
  • Heat the oil in a thick bottom pan and season with above mentioned ingredients.
  • Once the urad dal is slightly golden brown, add the ground paste and mix well.
  • Cover and cook for 5 minutes, mixing it in between to avoid sticking to the pan.
  • Add the cylinders to this and mix well. Cook on a low flame for 15 - 20 minutes, mixing every 3 minutes.
  • Once the paste reaches a dry consistency remove from flame and serve hot or warm.
