Undrallu/Steamed Rice Rava Balls


Undrallu is another favorite food of Lord Ganesha. Ganesha’s favored delicacies are very simple and easy to prepare. He is fond of kudumulu and undrallu. Both are prepared with rice only. They are easily digestible. One is sweet and the later one is savory. For our Vinayaka Chavithi kudumulu and undrallu are must. Undrallu are prepared with rice rava. If you don’t have time to prepare undrallu with rice rava simply you can prepare with rice flour and a pinch of salt adding required amount of water(make into small balls n steam them). But the undrallu prepared with rice rava taste excellent with simple ingredients. Use home made rice rava for best results. If not possible use good quality store-brought rice rava. Nowadays we are getting good quality rice rava from super markets. Get ready to prepare Undrallu this Vinayaka Chavithi. Here I present Undrallu which are prepared with rice rava and Bengal gram lentils. Worship God of new beginnings and remover of obstacles Lord Ganapathi and offer naivedhyam Undrallu.
