Soak rice and dal together for 4- 5 hours.

The batter should not be thick or watery.
Heat a non-stick tawa, pour a ladle of batter, and spread it in a circular motion.

Flip it over. Use oil if needed.
After both sides are cooked well, remove from tawa and serve it hot with chutney, sambhar, butter or chutney pudi.
