Recipe By : Niru Gupta
Type: Snacks Serving: 4-6


  • Batter for about 500 g vegetables:
  • Besan (Chick-pea flour) 2 cup (240 g)
  • Salt 1 tbsp or to taste
  • Haldi (Turmeric) tsp
  • Chilli powder 1 tsp or to taste
  • Hari Mirch (Green peppers), chopped fine to taste
  • Hara Dhania, chopped fine 2 tbsp
  • Amchoor (Dried Mango Powder) 2 tsp
  • Water 3-4 cups
  • Mixed vegetables (aloo, onions, palak, gobhi, baingan) and bread slices
  • Oil for deep-frying


  • Mix the besan, salt, chilli powder, hari mirch, dhania and amchoor, in enough water, to make it up to a pouring consistency.
  • Heat the oil and when a drop of batter dropped into the oil comes up at once, dip the vegetables into the batter, and drop into the hot oil and fry over medium heat, to a very light brown. Lift out and keep aside.

  • When ready to serve fry over high heat to a golden brown. Remove and drain on an absorbent paper, and serve with a green chutney or ketchup
