  12. Thanks for the helpful post Sharmi. Can we use urad dal with skin? Or to better formulate the question, I have urad dal with skin. If I powder it, can I use it to make seedai?

  13. @schmetterlingwords : This powder is mostly used for making indian snacks so urad dal without skin is preferred....
