I used :
Rice -2 cups
Toor dhal- ¼ cup
Gram dhal- ¼ cup
Moong dhal -¼ cup
Urad dhal – ½ a cup
Red chillies- 10
Sago – 1 cup
Quick cooking oats – 1 cup
Cumin seeds-1 teaspoon
Ginger – 1´piece
Asafoetida powder- ¼ teaspoon
Salt to taste
1. Soak the first 6 ingredients together for at least 5 hours. Soak sago separately.[The sago variety that I used needs to be soaked for a just a few hours.Soaking time depending on the variety / type of sago used]
2. Drain and grind to a smooth batter along with ginger, adding a little water.
3. In a large bowl, mix together the batter, sago, oats, cumin seeds, asafeotida powder and salt.
4. Mix well and add water if the batter is too thick.
5. Heat a griddle and pour a ladle of batter in the center and spread it to a circle.
6. Cook till the edges leave the pan .Flip over and cook for a couple of minutes. I did not drizzle oil as I use a non stick pan.
7. Remove from heat and serve hot with chutney/ sambar of your choice.
To the batter you can also add finely chopped onions, chopped curry leaves / grated coconut etc to enhance the taste.
