How can I make rice flour?
You get rice flour in the market. If you want to make at home, soak the rice for few hours, drain the water completely and let the rice air dry. When it is dry, make a powder of it. Shift the flour, dry roast it till it becomes dry and store in air tight containers.

I have heard that semolina takes a long time to cook, so can we roast the semolina before making the batter. will there be any difference in taste?
Hi Rubeena, We soak the semolina for some time. This helps in reducing the cooking time. But comparatively, semolina takes a little longer to cook. You can roast if you like but not necessary.

can we use lemon juice instead of curd?
Hi Smitha, I've never tried using lemon juice instead of curd. So am not sure how it will turn out.. If you try it, do let me know how it comes out.

Hi, can i use wheat flour instead of maida.
Maida is just for binding the batter... You can skip the maida part or even use 1 spoon of wheat flour too..
