  • Cashew nuts - 10 ( broken )
  • Salt - a pinch
  • Coconut oil - As required for deep frying
  • Sa jeerakam ( caraway seeds ) - 1 tsp

Method

Step 1

Wash and soak the rice in water for one hour.

Add half of the coconut milk to the rice, and grind it with sugar.

Step 4

Add the remaining coconut milk little by little while grinding to attain the required consistency. The batter should be smooth without any grainy effect and the consistency of the batter should be in between idly and dosa batter.
