Green chillies cut - 2

Urad dal,channa dal - 1 tbsp

Mustard seeds - 1 tbsp

Curry Leaves - 1 spring

buttermilk or water- 1 cup

Turmeric and onion slices – optional

Salt to taste

Oil - 1 tbsp


Method:

  • Mix flour, a pinch of salt in buttermilk and stir well so that it should form any lumps.
  • Heat oil in a kadai and splutter mustard seeds and curry leaves.
  • Add urad dal and channa dal and fry for few seconds. Add green chillies.
  • Saute for few secs and add onion slices if being used. Adjust turmeric and salt and fry till soft.
  • Now add the besan mixture and stir well without forming lumps. Cook it on low flame for 5 mins.
