1 cup toor dal
1/2 cup moong dal (Can substitute with toor dal)
1/2 cup chana dal (Can substitute with toor dal)
5-6 green chilli
1 cup grated coconut
1/4 tsp turmeric
3 Tbsp coriander leaves - finely chopped
1 sprig of curry leaves - finely chopped
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 cm ginger piece
1/2 onion - optional
1/4 tsp pepper powder

1) Soak dal overnight. Drain and grind the next day into a coarse mixture along with rest of the ingredients except onion, coriander leaves and curry leaves. Do NOT add water while grinding.
2) Mix with onion, coriander leaves and curry leaves. Check for salt.
3) Take a fistful of the dough and roll into an oval about 5-6cms long. Do the same for the rest. Place it in a oiled plate.
4) Bring about 2-3 cups of water to boil in a pressure cooker. Place the plate in the cooker and cover it without the weight on top. Reduce heat to medium and steam it for 15 minutes.

Serve with chutney or majjige huli :)
