Keep it on a medium heat and allow it to boil so that the water is all evaporated.
Cool it down and mix besan flour into the mixture and combine them together. Take little mixture and shape them into small balls.
In a mixing bowl, add rice flour, turmeric powder and little water to create a smooth slightly thick batter.
