Kucchulakki Unde / Boiled Rice Dumplings

1.5 cups Boiled Rice / Kucchulakki
1/2 cup grated Coconut
1/2 cup chopped Cucumber (Optional)
Salt to taste

Soak boiled rice in water for about 6-7 hrs. Wash the rice in water for about 2-3 times and it them aside. Peel the cucumber and chop it into medium sized pieces as shown in the picture below. (Remove the seeds if cucumber is ripen.)

Grind soaked rice, cucumber and coconut coarsely by adding sufficient amount of water. Add salt and water. (The consistency of the batter should be like that of milkshake.) Transfer this to a heavy bottomed pan and heat.

Keep stirring the mixture, making sure that it doesn't stick to the bottom of the vessel. Cook this mixture in medium flame for about 30 mins, stirring continuously till solid enough to be rolled into balls.

Transfer this dough to a plate.

Make lemon-sized balls by wetting your hands in water. Place this rice balls in a cooker container, cover one plate, steam cook for about 15 mins in high flame and another 30 mins in medium flame. (For pressure cooker: Don't put the weight, place one steel glass over the weight stand). Instead of pressure cooker a traditional steamer can also be used. Let them cool down a bit before you serve.

Serve them hot with any Sambar or Chutney. The ingredients mentioned above will serve around 20 rice dumplings.
