Railpalaharam

Haaaan I know this is a completely new word for all of you so let me explain you..... This is a special Telangana dish in AP and believe me it is very yummy to taste that you cannot eat little.... It is a combination of kudumulu and Channa dal mix..... I will explain you how to do them...... It is a very simple dish to do though time taking...... But seeing the recipe everyone will say wah wah..... so lets have a look.....!!!





Ingredients:

For kudumulu,
  • Rice flour 4 cups
  • water 3 cups
For Channa dal mix,
  • Channa dal 1 cup
For Seasoning,
  • Chopped Onions 1/2 cup
  • Green Chillies 6-7
  • Curry leaves
  • Corrainder or Cilantro
  • Cumin seeds
  • Mustard Seeds
  • Turmeric powder
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil 3-5 tbs


Method

  • Channa dal soaked in water for 3hours and then grind without water. Care to be taken that the mix should be little granuled type NOT completely powder.
  • Take a deep pan, Boil water.
  • Then add rice flour, salt. See that you are cooking this in low flame. After adding rice flour take a spatula and mix it in the water. Do not mix that like for upma. Then remove from the mixture from stove.
  • Now adding water ocasionally, make a soft dough and make small balls or u can make a big ball, and the cut them into pieces after it is cooked.
  • Now these mixture must be cooked in steam. ( For this I use electric rice cooker in which the main container in filled to 1/4th of water. And the other container that I got with the rice cooker, I place this mixture and ON the cooker for about 25-30 mins.
  • This can be checked, while eating it should not stick to our teeth.
  • Now Take a pan, add oil.
  • Once the oil gets heated up add cumin seeds, mustard seeds, Turmeric powder. After they splutter, add curry leaves and green chillies.
  • Now add onions and fry them until brown.
  • Add the dal mix and fry that till it becomes hot and soft.
  • Add the flour balls and salt. Mix the whole mixture and heat it for about 10mins mixing it ocasionally.
  • Now Railpalaharam is ready to eat.
