Parboiled rice (ukda chawal), soaked 2 3/4 cups
Rice 1/4 cup

Drain and mix the two rice and grind to a smooth batter. Drain the dal and grind to a smooth batter. Mix both the batters, add salt and whip with hand thoroughly. Keep the batter in a large vessel, close tightly and rest the batter overnight or for about four to six hours at room temperature to ferment. Mix the batter well, add water and adjust to a pouring consistency. Heat a flat non-stick tawa. Pour a ladle full of batter and spread it as thin as possible.
