Indian Style Mini Semolina Dumplings - Rava Ammani Kolukattai

I find this breakfast to be the cutest and further more it's healthy because they are steamed dumplings. Of course, frying them with little bit of oil will take it to the next level. The dumplings are infuse in Indian tempering spices that gives nuttiness, spice and salty flavor. Sometimes, I also add shredded carrot into the dough so that it adds color and nutrient to the dish.
