NOTE:

  1. We have to knead the dough when it is warm to get lumpless and smooth consistency . Filling the dough into a polythene cover and later kneading will help your hands as the dough is hot .
  2. Make sure you don’t overcook the rice balls they will turn rubbery and chewy when cooked for a long time.
  3. When you have kept the rice balls to steam , meanwhile in 2 seperate kadais prepare the sweet n savory temperings. By the time rice balls gets cooked our seasoning is ready .you can just toss them in masala. This will save lot of time.
  4. If you like the savory version to be spicy , you can add few green chillies or chutney powder n toss them .
