Hi Prasad,
In ingredients, I mentioned medium thick beaten rice and not thick beaten rice!

Thick Beaten Rice is used for mixture and you can refer Avalakki Mixture link for the picture.

Nylon/Paper thin Beaten Rice is used for Chiwda and you can refer Avalakki Chiwda link for the picture.

Regular thin Beaten Rice is used for Dosa, Uppukari, etc and you can refer Avalakki Dose link for the picture.
