  3. Put oil in it, when smoke begins coming add cumin seed. Wait for few seconds then add grounded dal and fry continuously till it becomes thick (it takes 3-4 minutes).
  4. Add salt, turmeric power, ajwain and Kalonji in it.
  5.  Now stuffing is ready. Keep aside.

For outer layer:

  1. Take a big ball. Put rice flour and salt in this.
  2. Boil 1 liter water in a big pot.
  3. Take 1 cup of boiled water and knead the rice flour, make dough similar to chapatti. (You can knead this into the food processor). That will be easy; kneading with hot water is difficult.

Method:

  1. Boil the water and add 5-8 pittha in it, depending on your pot size.
  2. Pittha should come up after few minutes, keep it to boil for another few minutes till it become slightly hard.
  3. Check this with spoon or fork.
  4. Take it out in the cold water pot; put it on the sieve, so that extra water drains out. Now pittha is ready to serve, garnish with fried green chilly.
