That looks fluffy and delicious. I would like to try it. Does it taste very bitter 'coz of the fenugreek?

I love fenugreek and will try this recipe. Could you clarify what "biyyam rawa" is? Hopefully, its something I can buy at a store.

Also, do I just add water to make the batter, or are there variations such as adding sour buttermilk that make it more fluffy?

Thanks!
Jay

@mika... a sort of but not bittersome....if u like the taste of fenugreek am sure u wud love this...
@jayashree...biyyam rawa is nothing but rice pounded coursely(dont grind it too fine or too coarse)..something similar to sugar crystals :) u can just grind a handful of rice in a mixer.
u can add water if the batter is too solid but no buttermilk. soda-bi-carb is to make them fluffy. too much of it or too little of it is dangerous.

I like the color of it Raji. Will be trying it shortly. You mentioned Karam podi, how do you make it? Andhra dishes are one of my favorites. Cheers!
