  • Add rice flour, salt and mix with fingers
  • Now pour 1 table spoon of oil and mix well.Add water little by little and knead well to form a dough.Divide it into three big sized balls
  • Smear your palm with oil
  • Take one ball at a time and spread it along the walls of a kadi using your fingers.Now turn on the stove
