Pappulo Undrallu (Rice Moong dumpling)

  • Duration: 30 minutes
  • Serves: 2–4 people

Authenticity Slice

Adding milk is optional and can be omitted by vegans. Milk adds a rich texture to the dish. If the dish is too thick, you can add more milk or water. If it’s too runny, cook for a longer time.

Trivia Tadka

This yummy and unique Andhra dish is a favourite of Lord Ganesh, and hence a must for Vinayaka Chaturthi.

  • Water (1 cup)
  • Jaggery (1/2 cup)
