rice flour – 3 cups
onions-finely chopped – 2 (big ones)
green chillies-finely chopped – 4
carrot-grated – 1 tbsp
coriander(cilantro) leaves – chopped finely – 1/2 cup
cumin seeds-coarsely pound – 2 tsp
salt to taste
water-for mixing – 1/2 cup to 1 cup
oil for shallow frying
Mix all the ingredients above, except the oil, in a mixing bowl. Add enough water to bind all the ingredients together to form one whole mass.
Grease a frying pan(or tava) with a little oil.
Take a ball of the mixture(as big as a tennis ball) and place it in the middle of the greased frying pan.
Flatten the mixture on the pan with your fingers until it is round and flat.
Spread a little oil on it.
Cover the frying pan with a covering lid and cook it in med-low flame until it is cooked (color changes).
Remove the lid and fry it for a couple of minutes.
Turn it and fry it on the other side for a few more minutes.
Serve hot with salted butter or Mango Achar or coconut chutney.
