seke undlaka or ammini kozhukattai recipe

Seke undlaka or ammini kozhukattai recipe explained with step by step pictures and a quick video. Seke undlaka is nothing but steamed sweet dumplings prepared using rice, jaggery and coconut. This is a very easy and tasty recipe for seke undlaka or ammini kozhukattai. Seke undlaka is also called by name undrallu or undilge.

This recipe is very popular in other states by name ammini kozhukattai. But in my family it is an age-old recipe and we call it by name seke undlaka. Seke translates to steam and undlaka translates to small dumplings in Kannada language. The authentic seke undlaka recipe is prepared by soaking and grinding the rice. But I prepare it using rice flour. I have two more similar sweet dumpling recipes on this website namely, kayi kadubu and eeradye or (sweet dumplings in turmeric leaves) recipes.

Seke undlaka is a very tasty recipe and is my personal favorite. Everyone in my family loves this. Small balls coated with coconut-jaggery is the real treat for your taste buds. So do not forget to try this recipe.
