Suji / Rava/ Semolina balls.

Suji ball is one of the easy, yummy , steamed breakfast dish made with suji / rava. It is very healthy and a perfect lunch box dish also. We are not using much oil . Once it is made it will be spongy for long hours. You can add beetroot juice, carrot juice for more colourful balls. There is no need of any chutney or side dish.
