Rice flour-1/4cup
Salt -As per taste
Oil-For deep frying..


First soak the dhal for atleast 2hours and grind in mixie coarsely,keep aside.

Now fry the rice flour in dry pan,till you feel the aroma..

Meantime make jeera and peppercorn coarse powder.

Now add all the ingredients,divide into equal size balls.

Pat on the plastic paper,which is greased with oil, with help of wetting your hands in water, make into flat and drop a hole in centre.

Fry in oil and drop on tissue papper, to remove excess oil.

This is famous prasatham in temple shops, particularly in South India.
