Measure and take the dal, heat the kadai and add the urad dal. Keep the flame in low and roast it until the nice aroma comes, for me it takes about 8 mins, don't let the dal color change drastically .Allow the dal to cool and put it in mixie jar and grind  into fine powder. 

Sieve the flour with fine mesh.If there are any large particles, put it in mixie jar again and repeat the process.
