    1. Mix the rice powder, 1 egg beat, salt, ginger and onion paste. A thick mixture will form. Use a big spoon to pick up portions of the mixture.
    2. Heat the oil in a deep frying pan. Pour the mixture from the big spoon on to the deep oil to make medium sized round lumps. The lumps ( pitha) will swell up in the deep oil.
    3. Fry until the lump becomes golden yellow brown.
    4. Repeat to make 7-8 pithas.
    5. Place the fried pithas on a paper or paper towel so that the excess oil is soaked up.
    6. Serve!
