You need a presser, which has 3 small holes.

Method:

Mix Rice flour and Urud flour in a mixing bowl. Add Asafoetida, Jeera (cumin), Salt. Melt the butter and whisk salt in it and pour it in the flour. Gently mix the flour and add required amount of water to it and knead the dough. The dough should not be too sticky or too hard. Now heat the oil.

Use a little more butter. Also, the hardness depends on the rice flour brand. I am sorry that it turned out hard.
