  • I loved the recipe. Though i haven't tried the recipe. I am from Rajasthan and i can read it to know it is going to be the best. How do you grind your dal without adding any more water. Looking for a good grinder i have Sumeet but it doesn't work all that good. May be i have a lemon! - 3/21/11

    When draining the Dal a little moisture stays in it because it has been soaked well.Grind it a little at a time---it's much easier that way.Besides you can try using the Magic Bullet with the Wet Grinding Blades and the smaller Grinding Cup----if you're in India you have a wide choice in Mixers!!
