  • Clean and grate the petha and squeeze out the water. Keep aside.
  • Grind together ginger, green chillies and coriander leaves in a food processor.
  • Take a big mixing bowl and add the dal. Add all the other ingredients.
  • Beat vigorously and mix well. Add water if necessary to make a dropping consistency.
  • Spread greased paper on trays. Pour out small blobs on the tray.
  • Leave them in the hot sun to dry.
  • Store in airtight containers.
