    5. Mix with a spoon, cover and keep this aside to cool off.
    6. Once this is cool enough, knead it into a dough, make 1/2 cms thick long cylinders and steam cook these.
    7. Once the cylinders are cooked and have become cool, cut them into small 1/4 inch pieces and keep aside.
    8. Heat the oil in a thick bottom pan and season with above mentioned ingredients.
    9. Once the urad dal is slightly golden brown, add the ground paste and mix well.
