made with raw rice. But when I saw these healthy godumai rava kozhukkatai in

Soak the Bengal gram dal and red chillies in water

Grind it into coarse paste with minimum water
In a pan dry roast the broken wheat rava till a good
smell emanates.

Now heat the oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds. Once
this starts to splutter add the dals and asafoetida and saute for a few
seconds. Now add the curry leaves
Now add the ground paste and cook on low flame for a
few seconds.
Add the water slowly as it tends to splutter.
Add the coconut and salt. Mix well and let it boil
Once it starts boiling, reduce the flame and slowly
add the rava, mixing continuously
Cover with a plate and let it cook till all the
moisture is absorb. 
This will approximately take 5 minutes
Once all the water is absorbed, switch off the fire
and let the mixture cool down
Before it cools down completely, make tight oblong
balls as shown, arrange these on the steaming plate of a steamer

Steam it for 8-10 minutes.

minutes for it to slightly cool down. Now transfer this to a serving dish and
