In a large pan heat the water, when warm take a ⅓ cup of water and mix it with the papad kharo in a small bowl, stir and leave it for a minute or two.

Now gradually add the rice flour while continuously stirring using a wooden spoon, make sure that there are no lumps in the flour.
Slowly add and mix the entire rice flour, and it will start forming into a soft dough-like consistency, cook for about a 2 minutes with the lid covered.
