½ cup millets (kambu)
½ cup urad dal
½ cup parboiled rice
Oil / ghee
Step 1 – Wash the rice and millets well, and soak them for four hours. Wash the urad dal separately and soak it for four hours.
Step 2 – Drain the water from the rice and dal. First, grind the dal with just enough water to blend. Later add rice and millet to it and grind it well. Grind the mixture until the texture is smooth.
Step 3 – After grinding the batter, transfer it into a bowl, add salt and mix it well. Allow the batter to ferment for about 6-8 hours.
Step 4 – Make sure the batter is transferred into a large bowl as it rises after fermentation. Add water and bring it to a liquid consistency.
Step 5 – Heat a tawa and when it is hot, pour one ladle of batter in it and spread it to the sides. Drizzle some oil or ghee around the edges. Once the side is cooked, flip and cook the other side until crisp. Serve hot with chutney or sambar!
