- Urad dal (Minapappu) - 1/2 cup
Wash and soak rice and urad dal in water for about 2 hrs.
Soak chana dal for about half an hour. Pressure cook dal in 1/2 cup of water till 1or2 whistles . Set Aside.
Allow the paste to cool. Grease your hands with oil or ghee and roll the paste to small size balls.
Add salt to the fermented batter. I prefer adding sugar over salt to the batter. Adding sugar gives a mild sweet taste when compared to adding salt.
Remove from oil, drain on a kitchen paper to remove any excess oil and serve.
Ido this item for varalakshmi vratham,ganesh chathurdi,sankranthi etc big festivals ..
Note: Left over batter can be used to make dosas. .
