Wash & drain well.
Keep 2 - 3 tbsp of this soaked dhal aside.
Then coarse grind the remaining dhal in a food processor/grinder.
Don’t add any water.Finally it should be a coarse mixture.
Combine all the ingredients listed above together with the grinded mixture.Add the 2-3 tbspn dhal which kept aside.Check for salt & taste.
