Onions - 1/2 cup (finely chopped)
Asafetida - 1/4 tea spoon
Salt - 3/4 tea spoon
Curry Leaves - 10 (chopped fine)
Coriander Leaves - 2 table spoons (chopped fine)
Fennel Seeds - 1 tea spoons
Oil - to fry



Soak the dals, kaaramani and rice in luke warm water for 2 hours
Strain the water, but do not discard all water and grind it to a coarse paste
To the above batter, add salt, curry leaves, coriander leaves, green chili and asafetida
Mix well
Heat oil in a frying pan until medium hot
Add the onions and fennel seeds to the batter
Make small balls from the batter and drop it into the medium hot oil
