This is a north Indian snack but popular all over India. This is made with either besan or sooji. I like the besan (gram flour) version. This is usually served with coriander chutney. This is very fluffy and very tasty snack. This is a steamed dish and you can eat as much as you like :-)


Gram flour or besan - 1cup
Yogurt - 1 cup
Turmeric Powder - 1/2 tsp
Green chili chopped - 1
Eno fruit salt - tsp
Cilantro chopped - little

Sugar - 1 tsp
Salt as required.
For seasoning:
Mustard - 1tsp
Curry leaves - 5
Green chili - 3 slit
Oil - 2tsp

In a bowl mix gram flour and yogurt to a smooth paste , the batter should be thick. Add other ingredients and set aside for 1/2 an hour. To steam I used the cake pan, you can use anything. Grease the pan and pour the batter in it and steam cook for 10 to 15 mins. When its done cut to a medium sized cubes and season it with mustard and curry leaves and garnish with fried green chilies and cilantro. Serve with coriander chutney.Enjoy!!!
