Steamed Spinach and Rice Dumplings

In an Indian household, leftover food never gets thrown away. Yet, no one eats leftover food as it is. It generally has to be converted into some other recipe in order to get gustatory acceptance.

This is one such recipe. It is very simple and gets made in barely 15 to 20 minutes.

Handful of washed and finely chopped spinach leaves
2 cups cooked rice
3 tablespoons gram flour (besan)
A pinch of asafoetida
1 tsp red chilli powder
1 and 1/2 tsp ginger garlic paste
1 tsp oil
Salt to taste

Mix all the ingredients  together in a bowl. Do not add water. Squeeze hard so that the spinach releases some of its water. Roll them in the form of balls.

Grease a plate with oil and place the dumplings in this. Heat the steamer, and place the plate in the steamer. Steam the dumplings for about 15 to 20 minutes. Serve hot.

It is this simple and tastes great too.

Happy Cooking!
