Wash and soak raw rice, boiled rice, urad dal, tur dal, fenugreek seeds for 3 hours.
Grind the above soaked ingredients in a grinder for 20 minutes and add Salt. Transfer the batter to a container and it for fermentation (for about 8-10 hours)
Add chopped onion, coriander leaves, green chillies and curry leaves just before making oothappam.
