Besan puttu / scrambled chick peas flour


This is a  perfect rainy day snack without frying (ready in 5 mins). If you crave for bajji/pakora on a rainy evening, but double thinking it because of its deep frying, try this, same flavor, same taste sans the frying.
Image
Mix 5 tbsp. of besan (chick peas flour) + 2 tbsp. of rice flour + 1 tsp turmeric powder + 2 tsp chlli powder + salt to taste.
Image
Add water and make batter with the consistency of bajji/pakora batter.

 Image
In a non-stick pan add a tbsp. of oil and fry mustard seeds, urad dhal, curry leaves and chopped green chillies.
Image
Sauté chopped red onions and coriander leaves. (You can add thinly sliced bell peppers also).
Image
Pour in the prepared batter and stir.Image
Keep stirring as the batter thickens.
Image
Try breaking the big chunks while stirring…
Image
This is just like scrambling an egg. If you don’t use a non-stick pan, you might have to use more oil.
Image
And its done… This is traditionally a side for rice, but I like it as a snack.
