Soak urad dal for 2-3 hrs.

Grind together soaked dal,coconut,cumin,garlic and shallots into a coarse paste.

Add luke warm into the rice flour,mix it well to make a thick batter which looks like idli batter.

Add this batter to the ground paste,add salt and again grind it to a smooth batter.

The final batter should also be the same consistency as of idli batter.Line a flat steel plate with banana leaf,grease it with a little oil,and pour this batter onto it.

Make a cross of the Palm leaf you get from church on Palm Sunday,and place it on top of the batter .

Steam cook it until done,you can use an idli cooker for steaming.

Remove it from the banana leaf and serve with Pesaha paalu.
