Step 1

Soak rice and red gram/toor dhal together for 4-5 hours.

Step 2

Grind rice-dhaal mixture with coconut, red chillies, tamarind paste and asafoetida to a smooth paste with little water (if the masala is too watery, it will leak out of the leaves).

Step 3

Add salt to this masala.

Step 4

Meanwhile, snip off the stems, wash and dry the pathrado leaves.

Step 5

Spread out one big pathrado leaf and apply a portion of the masala on it. Place another leaf on top of it and apply another layer and so forth (don`t overstack).

Step 6

Roll this stack of leaves and masala (to look like egg rolls) and steam in a pressure cooker for 30 minutes.

Step 7

:- Serve with cococut oil.
