For the uninitiated, kudumulu are Andhra style steamed rice cakes which are similar to modak. These can be made sweet or savoury. The ones that we are trying today are made of broad beans, rice flour and some simple tempered south Indian spices. Once they have been shaped, many fry these in oil for some time before boiling them in the same pan. These soft steamed cakes taste great with coconut chutney or garlic chutney.
