  1. Hi Shabbu, thanks for sharing the above recipe. I am always looking for ideas for tea time.
    Two queries : is the dhal the same one used to make dosae/iddli? Also will the dhal batter cook through
    on high heat?
    Thanks from Malaysia, Mrs Singh

    • Thank you Mrs Singh..
      Yes, the dhal which we use to make idli is used here..
      Heat the oil on high heat, then drop the mixture and then fry it in medium flame..( thanks for the query, I updated in the recipe :))
