Dear Friends,

I am happy to announce that this post is my 1000th post.  It is a great achievement for me as far as I am concerned.  I could not have been successful without your support, encouragement.

I sincerely thank each one of you and my family members on this occasion and the God who has created varieties of  vegetables, fruits and other items for making lovely dishes for human consumption and for sharing and caring.

Let me turn to the recipe now:

This recipe is of Karnataka State.  In Tamil Nadu and Kerala, we make Rasam Vada. The Bonda soup is somewhat similar to that but the soup is made out of three dals  viz. tur, moong and masoor.    This is quite healthy and delicious too. 

 The variation in the soup is in rasam we add tamarind  but in the soup, it is avoided.

The bonda or vada in the hot soup is really awesome.  You can make the Bonda Soup with the left over vada also.

Let us look at the recipe now:

 My exploration of  Karnataka recipes is on.  Today I prepared the Unde Kadubu or known as Pundi Gatti. Normally, Tamilians and Malayalees  also prepare this rice dumplings either by grinding the rice (boiled rice)  or with the rice rava or idli rava.  The traditional pundi gatti is prepared by soaking and grinding the boiled rice.   However, this preparation is a  is a typical  Malnad style breakfast recipe and popular by name unde or unde kadubu or undlige. This is a plain version of unde kadubu prepared using rice and coconut.   We can also prepare Sweet and spicy version  according to your requirement which is known as Vella Kozhukkattai and Ulundu Kozhukkattai in Tamil version.  

This  is an easy, healthy and tasty breakfast  as the same is steamed and steamed foods are good for health.  It can be served with hot sambar or rasam or any kind of chutney.  I served it with an instant  rasam which is very  quick  and easy to prepare.  The recipe is given below.

Now let us look at the recipe Unde Kadubu:
