Brown rice and white rice are ground along with grated coconut and are steamed in banana leaves to make a delicious Konkani breakfast, from my great grandmother's times! They are called ukde suray muddo in Konkani. My mom loved these dumplings/muddo that her granny made for her during her childhood. And my mom ended up making them often for us as we fell in love with this age old Konkani breakfast.
Ukde suray muddo tastes delicious while they steaming hot and even more once they cool down. You make them for breakfast and they end up tasting the best in the evening while they are cold! I personally don't need anything to go with these delicious dumplings/muddo. I have them as-is and they taste great! However, these muddo are traditionally served with a spicy, red coconut chutney. Ukde suray muddo are soft and tasty due to grated coconut, with an amazing smell and taste from banana leaves. They'll make you fall in love with them.
Give ukde suray muddo a try, when you make some ukde suray polo/brown rice, white rice dosa. The batter is the same, you'll only need a very thick batter to make these dumplings/muddo. Keep a little of the thick, ground batter aside, steam them for breakfast and enjoy these muddo's. Keep the remaining thick batter in the fridge, dilute it and make some delicious dosas for breakfast the next day. That's what we do at home.

1. These ukde suray muddo go well with a spicy, red coconut chutney made by frying few red chillies with oil for a minute. These red chillies are then ground with grated coconut, salt, tamarind into a smooth paste, diluted a little and is seasoned with asafoetida, curry leaves, dried red chillies and mustard seeds.
2. If you are steaming a number of muddo/dumplings in your steamer or they are thicker in size then steam them for more than 30 minutes. May be 45-50 minutes.
