Take fresh gram flour in a bowl. Add packaged or home prepared yogurt and near about one cup of lukewarm water and mix it properly. Avoid lumps. Add salt to taste and mix again until no lumps are left.

In a small bowl take freshly prepared lemon juice, soda bicarbonate, one teaspoon of oil and mix well. Add it to the batter already prepared and whisk briskly. Pour batter into the greased thali and place it in the steamer.
