Add the chopped Bell peppers, grated carrots and the other vegetables. Mix well.

Spread the batter on a hot Griddle and put some oil on the edges. As there is no rice in the batter, it needs to be slightly thick. Cover to cook, if needed. Cook till nice golden brown. Flip and cook again for a few seconds.


Serve hot with some Avial or Chutney and Powdered jaggery.
