    • 1 cup urad dal (skinless), washed and rinsed
    • 1 cup moong dal (skinless), washed and rinsed
    • sea salt to taste


    Soak urad and moong dal separately for 2 hours (Its better to use half and half - equal quantities of both dal the first time till you get a feel for it). Grind the soaked dal in the blender till you get a slightly coarse (but almost smooth) paste. Pour into a large bowl. Allow this mixture to ferment for 8 -12 hours depending on the room temperature. In summer days 8 hours is sufficient, but on cooler days it takes longer. You can smell it to tell whether it is ready or not. It should have a slightly sour, fermented smell. Add water so that it is of the consistency of dhosa batter (somewhat similar to pancake batter). Add sea salt to taste.Steam the batter about ΒΌ inch thick in square baking dish. Cut in same size squares and serve with a chutney of your choice.
