Fry the red gram and black gram to a light orange.

Step 4

Powder them and allow them to cool.

Step 5

Mix together the powdered rice, powdered dals, cumin seeds, asafoetida powder, chilly powder, butter and salt. Do not add water.

Step 6

Take a little of this mixture and add water to it to get a dough like consistency.
