  • Urad Dal - 1/2 cup
  • Salt- 1.5 tsp
  • Milk - 1/4 cup
  • Cooking soda- 2 pinches

    1. Soak rice and dal together for 2 hours. Grind to a smooth paste.
    2. Add salt and cooking soda (no need to ferment).
    3. Dilute the batter to desired consistency with milk and enough water.
    4. Pour oil in a small, deep curved pan and heat as for gulab jamuns.
    5. Keep on medium flame, and with the help of a small ladle, pour the batter like you would an appam.

    7. Drain excess oil by keeping on absorbent paper.
