  3. Allow batter to ferment in a warm place for about 8-10 hours. Make sure the container has enough room for the batter to rise.
  4. Add salt to the fermented batter and mix well.
  5. Place a non stick griddle on medium heat, once hot, pour a ladle full of batter at the center, with the back of the ladle, spread the batter thinly. Start from the center and work outwards, in a fast circular motion.
  6. Spread the batter as soon as you pour it on the griddle the batter will start getting cooked other wise and stick to the ladle, if you try spreading it after a while.
