1 cup gram flour (besan)

30 cashew nuts

1/2 tsp turmeric powder

1 tsp red chilli powder

2 green chillies, finely chopped

1 Tbsp tamarind pulp

Salt, to taste

4 Tbsp oil + to shallow fry

2 Tbsp fresh coriander, finely chopped


In a mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients except oil. Add 1 1/2 cups of water and mix well to make a very thick batter.

Heat 4 tablespoons oil in a frying pan over a low heat. Add the prepared batter and cook, stirring continuously, for 15 to 18 minutes till the mixture comes together to make a thick doughy batter. Remove from heat.

Grease a small tray and spread the mixture evenly 1 inch thick. Set aside to cool and steam it for at least 30 minutes so that it sets. Cut into 2 inch squares.

Heat the oil in frying pan and shallow-fry the squares till golden and crisp. Remove and drain on absorbent paper.

Serve hot with coriander chutney, mint chutney or ketchup.
