Step 1

Mix 1/2 cup of milk, 11/2 cups of water to the rice flour with ghee and a pinch of salt together.

Step 2

Heat the batter in a pan (preferably non stick) and keep stirring without any lumps, till it forms a dough consistency.

Step 3

This time u will get a thinner milk. Repeat it again the third time too where u will get a very thin extract. Do not mix the coconut milks together. keep aside.

Step 7

:- If u are using tinned coconut milk, add 1/2 cup of water to 1/2 cup of the coconut milk cream to get the first thick extract. Take 1/4 cup of coconut cream and add 1/2 cup of water to make the 2nd extract and repeat this step again for the 3rd extract with the remaining 1/4 cup of coconut milk cream.

Step 8
