A wet grinder can crush different grains together into a paste.

Any grinder that can operate on a mixture that includes water is called a wet grinder. Wet grinders have numerous uses in construction and industry, but they are also frequently used in kitchens. Wet grinders are very popular in Indian kitchens and are used to make pastes from grains and lentils. Wet grinders are advantageous over mixers or blenders because the stone grinder does not generate a lot of heat, which can change the flavor of the food.

Place the drum on the center rod of the wet grinder. Rotate the drum until it clicks into place. Place the roller mechanism into the drum.
