  1. Wipe the rice and urad dal with a wet cloth, mix and grind dry coarsely (like semolina). Alternatively, soak the rice and urad dal overnight in plenty of water and grind in a mixer the next day.
  2. Add the sour curds and hot water and make into a thick paste.
  3. Leave to ferment for at least 6 to 7 hours.
  4. Make a paste of the green chillies and ginger.
  5. Now add to the batter the baking soda, oil, asafoetida, green chilli paste and salt and mix well.
  6. Apply a little oil to a metal thali (flat metal plate with low rim). Pour enough batter so as to fill half the height of the thali. This should ordinarily be about 1/2 teacup for a small thali.
  7. Sprinkle a little ground pepper on top.
  8. Steam for about 10 minutes.
  9. Cut into pieces and serve with raw oil and green chutney.

Handy tip:

  1. Always use your hands while mixing the batter to break the lumps.

This is my favorite Gujju snack which goes great with green chutney. Normally had every week at our house.
