It is our traditional dish and me and my family like it so much. It's very time taking recipe but worth preparing. Rice flour, soaked gram pulse are used as ingredients. We call it 'Fara '. Do you prepare it? you like to eat it?

How you prepared it? How to make the dough? Is it a sweet dish?

No it is not sweet, it is salty and we add chilly and a little bit ginger and garlic in the gram pulse while grinding. The dough is made with rice flour. I made small chapattis with the dough and put the paste of gram flour in it and folded it.
