  • Pressure cook chana dal with enough water and salt. keep aside (Cook till all the water evaporates)
  • Crush all the ingredients listed under "to crush".Keep aside.
  • Heat a pan with oil.Add mustard and let it splutter.Add raw rice and curry leaves .Now add crushed coconut mixture.Fry it for 1 minute in low flame.
