An interesting and healthy recipe learnt from my friend . Her description of the recipe and photo tempted me to make it immediately and my 80 years old mother in law certified this awesome and very soft. Since it is steamed and boiled very good for digestion and the flavour of urad dal, green chilli paste and coconut oil really brings out mesmerising taste...

  • Urad dal 1 cup
