Basale pundi recipe explained with step by step pictures. This is a typical Mangalore style or tulunad style traditional breakfast recipe. Basale pundi is nothing but steamed rice dumplings in onion gravy. Basale pundi is prepared using rice, onion, coconut and spices.
Pundi gatti or unde kadubu is a very popular breakfast recipe across Malnad and Mangalore-Udupi region of Karnataka. Whereas this basale pundi is slighlty different. Here small rice dumplings are made and then they are soaked in onion sambar or gravy. This basale pundi is a traditional recipe and I learnt this recipe from my Mother-in-law.
Preparing basale pundi is time consuming. But once it is prepared, you need not worry about chutney or any side dishes. You can straight away serve it with ghee or coconut oil. The steamed rice dumplings tastes great, when they are soaked in the onion sambar or gravy. I would say this is a must try recipe.
I have posted many steamed recipes on this website like Pundi gatti or unde kadubu, kayi kadubu, kara kadubu, eeradye, pathrode, nuchinunde, idli, cucumber idli and pumpkin sweet idli recipes. Steamed recipes are very healthy.
