      Drain the rice and lentils, place in a blender, and grind to a smooth paste. Add a little water to form a thick batter
    3. 3
      Add the salt, sugar and baking soda to the batter and mix well. Set aside to ferment at room temperature for at least 4 hours and up to 15
    4. 4
      Place the chopped onion, diced tomatoes, chopped green chile, and chopped cilantro in separate bowls

      Garnish the surface with a little each of the onion, tomato, green chile, and chopped cilantro and spread evenly.

      Sprinkle some of the oil or ghee over and around the bread. Cook over low heat until small bubbles appear on the surface, about 5 minutes

      Excellent! I did have to play with the frying. Do make sure to heat the pan first then a good amount of ghee then place the the batter. Very similar to potato pancakes with a kick. I did let ferment overnight. I`m learning to like curry leaves. But doing it slowly 1 leaf at a time. Thank you made for Lively Lemon Lovelies of ZWT #8 . Namaste
