  1. Adding black pepper to the batter alone gives unique taste. Using red chili + black pepper is another delicious combination.
  2. This is a wholesome food with  side dishes such as raita + fruits or vegetable salad + curd.
  3. We can serve with grated paneer/cheese for kids.
For people who are dieting or diabetic and others who avoid rice, I formulated this receipe,
