Add some jeera seeds and chopped garlic to the batter for added taste.



If we add ginger-garlic paste,coriander leaves, green chilly paste and coriander seeds in the batter,it is more tasty.There is no need to ferment.We can use whole moong,split moong,split yellow moong dal or make it more healthy by using sprouted moong.
