It’s also one of the common street foods we can see it anywhere in Tamilnadu. This recipe is also going to MBP – Street Food contest. I come across this recipe in Seetha’s blog and you can see her original recipe HERE.
She has added urad dhal in her recipe which I haven’t added it in mine since my mom won’t use to add it. Instead of soaking raw rice, I have used rice flour and seethe has used thoor dhal a lot in her original recipe but I have added only a little, in my style.
