Notes | FAQ

- I used roasted vermicelli. If you dont have roasted vermicelli, you can just dry roast the one you have and let it come to room temperature before adding to the mixture.
- Do adjust the water quantity accordingly, to get a batter consistency as shown in my pic. The batter should be thin similar to rava dosa batter consistency.
