    You do it in a mixer & grinder the truth is you need a hammer break & eat it

    The tip is already given in the recipe. If the batter is not dry enough, then steam the batter. U can directly place the thick bottomed vessel with batter on slow fire and keep stirring contioniously or can even use a steamer/double boiler.
