Mix the ground rice and ground yellow lentils and set aside.
Heat a pan, over medium heat and pour the oil. When the oil is hot, add the mustard seeds. When the mustard seeds are about to crackle, add the white split gram beans. A little before the white split gram beans turn brown, add the chopped green chilies and the dry red chili. When the white split gram beans turn brown, add the curry leaves, water and salt.
When the water boils, lower the heat and gradually add the mixture of rice and yellow lentils and keep on stirring. Add the grated coconut. When the mixture thickens and there is no water, remove from heat.
When the cooked mixture is a little cool, make small, round balls or oval-shaped balls and place the balls in a steamer or Idli steamer tray and steam cook for 10-15 minutes. Serve with Chutney.
