1 c Rice
1/3 c Urad dal
1/3 c Chana dal
1/3 c Yellow split peas
1 ts Salt
1 ts Red chili powder
1 lg Onion (opt)
1 Carrot (opt)
1/4 c Coconut, grated (opt)
Mix rice, chana dal, urad dal, and yellow split peas in a large vessel.
Soak in a lot of water for about 2 hours.
Grind the soaked mixture with chili powder and salt coarsely, without
adding much water.
Ferment for about 3 - 4 hours, then refrigerate or freeze. In cold weather,
the fermenting process might take longer, and it might be a good idea to
ferment in an oven (the pilot light will keep the mixture warm).
Add either onions (finely cut), carrot (grated) or coconut before
If freezing, only ferment for about an hour. The mixture will have to be
left out for a while before being ready to use.
