Kudumulu or Undrallu


Vinayaka Chavithi also known as Ganesh Chaturthi is one of the most popular festivals in India. Kudumulu is offered to god as Naivedyam on that day. As part of the Vinayaka Chavithi recipes, I present this Kudumulu which is one of my favourites.


Biyyam ravva (rice rava): 2 cups
water: 4 cups
sanagapappu (chana dal): 1/4 cup
ghee / oil: 2 tsp

How to:
  • To prepare biyyam ravva: wash rice and dry completely and ground to a coarse powder similar to sooji.
  • Soak chana dal 15 minutes ahead and drain.
  • Bring water to boil in a thick bottomed pan.
  • Add oil / ghee and chana dal to it.
  • Let it boil for 5 mints and add the ground rice ravva and stir continuously ensuring that no lumps are formed.Once all the water is absorbed and appears like a big lump, cover and cook for 4-5 mts. Turn off the heat and cool.
  • Alternatively use a cooker instead of pan and cover with lid immediately after adding the rava. Wait for three wistles and remove from the stove.
  • Once cool, make big lemon sized balls of the cooked mixture.
