Brown Rice Dumplings

This one's inspired from Gita's Kitchen. Its a great and healthy breakfast..

I'm trying to get into better food, so bought brown rice.. Its so bad to cook, and so bad to eat.. I was wondering what to do with it, and landed up on the recipe. Modified it to suit our taste..

Took a cup of brown rice, soaked it for 3-4 hours. Made a paste along with required salt in a mixie.
Then started cooking it in a vessel, while stirring continuously. In a seperate vessel for tempering (bagharia), heated some oil, added musturd seeds, curry leaves, some chopped chillies, and ginger garlic paste.
Added the tempering to the cooking rice paste and mixed well. When the rice was cooked to a dough like consistency, to be able to make balls of, turned off the gas and allowed the dough to cool. As it was still to hot, and it was getting late for breakfast, I didn't make balls of it as per the original recipe (but will do next time). Then put the dough in a steamer and steamed for 15 mins. Then cut it into desired shape and serve with chutney.
