  9. Pour ½ tsp oil in a 175 mm. (7") diameter thali.
  10. Spread it on the thali with the help of a brush to grease it completely.
  11. Just before steaming, add the fruit salt to the rajma batter. Do not let the batter sit for too long after adding fruit salt as they will not be soft if done that. Also, make sure you are using fresh fruit salt.
