Paddu or Gundpangli is made with the same batter of dosa but the tava is different. To prepare this we need special paddu tawa.
Parboiled Rice or Plain Rice : 3 cups
Urad Dal : 1 cup
Fenugreek seeds/menthe kaalu - 1/2 tsp
Salt for taste
Pressed Rice /Avalakki : 1/2 cup OR Puffed Rice/Mandakki/Puri : 1/2 cup
Soak rice,urad dal with fenugreek seeds around 5 hours.
Make a smooth paste of this soaked mixture (batter should be like normal dosa batter).
Allow it to ferment for 6-8 hours (I normally keep it overnight)
Add salt to this batter .
Heat the paddu or gundpangli tawa.
Add 2 drops of oil to each of the holes, pour this batter and close with plate or close lid.
After a min, remove the lid and turnover paddu using the wooden stick or a spoon.
Cook on both sides until it turns golden brown.
Serve it hot with a coconut chutney or groundnut chutney of your choice.Variation:
