coarse batter not very watery

3) Take that batter into a small bowl and check the consistency..
4) It should not be too watery, if it is add some more rice flour to it and mix it to get a good consistency
5) On a frying pan pour 2 tsp oil/clarified butter.
6)Now take a big round spoon pour that batter on the pan and use the same spoon for spreading the batter
in circular motion to make it huge round in shape. It should be evenly spread.
7)Brush some oil at the edges and the center so that the batter does not stick to the pan. It has to be very thin
8) Let it cook for 30-40 seconds on one side on normal flame. Because it is very thin like paper you don't need to flip and cook other side.
