  • Wash rice and dal in lots of water till it is completely cleaned. Drain it and dry it.
  • Heat ghee in a thick bottom kadai. Add in the washed rice and dal and roast them on a medium heat till it is golden. It will take around 20 to 25 mins.
  • Now remove them to a plate and let it cool.
  • In the same pan roast cumin and asafoetida for a couple of mins and remove them as well.
  • Now take everything in a blender and powder them finely.
  • Place a sieve over a place and sieve this mix. You will get some coarse crumbs, add that back in blender and powder again and sieve it again.
