    1. Drain the Dal and Rice mixture and grind coarsely. Mix chillies, chopped onions, and ginger chopped and salt and grind it again to make a smooth batter of dropping consistency.
    2. Now, proceed to make like Dosas. Heat Tawa and splash some water over it and immediately pour some batter and spread it out.
