Note :

Adding more chilly is optional. Take care while roasting urid dal. (I have used whole white Urid) Optional. The measurement is like 2 cups of rice flour : 1/2 cup of urid dal. (The same cup which you used for measuring rice.Adding sesame and jeera gives a good aroma. Adding more chilly is optional. You can also add little ing/Asafotida ) while preparing the dough.Do not put lots of water to the flour.
If the dough turns more watery add little  fresh rice flour and mix it well.
You can add any spice that you like. (Optional).
Time : 30 Minutes.
