1 cup plain rice
1 cup parboiled rice
1/4 cup white urad dal
1/2 tsp. fenugreek seeds
1 /2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1/2 cup plain yogurt (curds)
10-12 tsps. ghee or oil as preferred
water for grinding and soaking


  1. Combine the rices and the urad dal and soak in water overnight.
  2. Rinse, then grind to a paste. Add the bicarbonate of soda and the salt and mix. Set batter aside for 8 hours.
  3. Beat the yogurt then combine with batter. Add water if too thick – the batter should be thick enough to coat a spoon.
  4. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat.
  5. Drop a tablespoon of batter into the skillet then spread quickly with the back of a spoon. Use circular motions to flatten and spread the batter into a thin round.
  6. Brush with ghee and cook until crisp.
  7. Repeat until dough is used.
  8. Serve with your choice of chutney.
