1 cup rice 1/3 cup urad dal 1/3 cup chana dal 1/3 cup yellow split peas 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon red chili powder 1 large onion (opt) 1 carrot (opt) 1/4 cup coconut, grated (opt)
Mix rice, chana dal, urad dal, and yellow split peas in a large vessel. Soak in a lot of water for about 2 hours.
Grind the soaked mixture with chili powder and salt coarsely, without adding much water.
Ferment for about 3 - 4 hours, then refrigerate or freeze. In cold weather, the fermenting process might take longer, and it might be a good idea to ferment in an oven (the pilot light will keep the mixture warm).
Add either onions (finely cut), carrot (grated) or coconut before preparing.
