Boil the water in deep bottomed vessel by adding 1 tsp of oil and the salt.
Once the water starts boiling, add the rice flour slowly and keep mixing it.
Mix the flour well, cover it with a lid and reduce the heat to low.
Turn it off in couple of minutes and let it sit for 5 minutes.
While the flour is warm, grease your hand with oil, and knead the dough nicely.
Make big balls/dumplings from the dough and make sure these dumplings fit in your presser. I made four big dumplings.
Now in an idly cooker or in any steamer, steam these dumplings for 15 minutes.
Let it cool for 5 minutes meanwhile grease the insides of the presser, mold with oil.
Add the dumplings and start pressing them.
That’s it. You can serve this with sugar and coconut milk or prepare any flavored Sevai.
Start kneading the dough when it is warm. If not it becomes really hard. If required, add few tbsps of water while kneading. (I didn't add any) The size of the dumpling is depending upon the size of the presser you have.
