  • How to Make Patholi:

    3. In a kadai, season oil with mustard and urad dal.
    4. When mustard splutters, add curry leaves and the ground paste. Keep it on a slow flame and keep stirring every 5 minutes.
    5. It will take like 30 minutes for this paste to get roasted (it turns pinkish).
    6. Add coriander at the end. Do not cover it at any time while cooking.
