  • In a bowl, put rice flakes and pinch of salt and pour the hot water. 
  • Keep it just for 1 minute.
  • Filter the water out and keep the rice flakes alone separately so that it dries.
  • Meanwhile, in a pan or kadai, add the oil, and when it is hot, add the mustard seeds, dhalls, green chillies, curry leaves and onion and saute till the onion becomes tender.
