Bellam Kudumulu – Vinayaka Chavithi Recipes Andhra
Bellam Kudumulu also called Teepi Kudumulu is a traditional Andhra sweet dish prepared for Vinayaka Chavithi. Rice flour is the star player in this popular festive treat that is a favorite of Lord Ganesha. Rice flour, jaggery, coconut and cardamom are cooked together to a gooey mixture that is kneaded before being shaped into flattened discs and steamed. The steamed dumplings scented with cardamom have a subtle sweet flavor and are quite addictive like bellam undrallu.
You can add a fistful of soaked chana dal to the boiling water before adding the rice flour. The addition of the dal lends an earthy flavor to this humble offering. Makes for a good evening snack for kids and adults alike. 🙂
