    Looks easy. I'll try it and let you know. Can I use a blender to make the lentil paste?

    After soaking the lentils , its quite soft , so pounding it coarsely is better, if you blend , you will use water , so we dont need water here. or if you used grinder , it will be too fine. you can grind just 1 spin and maybe it will give you a coarse look.
