Instructions

Soaking , grinding and fermenting batter

  • Just 15 minutes before grinding the dal, soak the poha. Take poha in a bowl and add water to it. The water should be covering 1 cm above the poha. Cover and let it soak for 15 minutes. The poha will become soft and have absorbed the water well.
