Prepare rice flour and urad dhal powder as mentioned in this link.
Add all the ingredients (except oil) to the flour , mix well and make a stiff dough using water.
Make gooseberry sized balls from the dough.
Grease a plastic sheet with oil, place a ball in it, cover with another greased plastic sheet and press the dough with the flat bottomed cup. Flatten all the balls like this.
Heat oil, and slide the flattened balls in oil. Deep fry on both sides till golden brown.
You can also use chenna dhal soaked in water instead of pottukadalai. Soak chenna dhal in water for half an hour.
You can also flatten the balls with your hand. But there will be finger marks in it.
