1 cup of semolina flour (fry slightly without oil)
3-4 tsbs of ghee
2 cups of water
1 onions sliced finely
1 green chillies or 1 dry chillies - break into pieces.
1 tsp of mustard seeds
a few sprigs of curry leaves
salt to taste

Method

Add in water and let it boil. Add salt to taste. Once the water is boiling add in the flour and stir well till the flour is mix well with the water. Cook for a few more minutes stirring occasionaly.
