I consider July to Jan as festival months because we have festivals to celebrate every now and then. I usually grind the urad dal flour and store it. Whenever I need to use them, I grab my urad dal flour. It is super easy to make and definitely much better than the store bought flour. If you are planning to make lot of snacks like murukku, thattai, seedai etc., make a large container of urad dal flour and use it when required.
