RECIPE INSTRUCTIONS

» Make Besan Batter //

  1. In a large mixing bowl mix besan, salt, carom seeds, turmeric powder, red chili powder, green chilies, chopped coriander leaves, chopped onions, and chopped tomatoes.
  2. Add water little by little and whisk to make a smooth and lump-free thick flowing consistency batter. I use 1 cup water for 2 cups besan, but this amount may vary due to the different varieties of gram flour. You just need to keep in mind that the batter is not thin, or otherwise the bread slices would turn soggy.
  3. At this point, you can taste the batter to check the seasonings. Adjust seasonings according to your tastebuds. Keep this besan batter aside.

RECIPE NOTES

  1. For additional flavoring, you can slightly dry roast besan before making the batter.
  2. You can also add 1 tablespoon of rice flour, semolina (suji), or cornflour to the batter to make the toasts crispier.
  3. In the besan batter, you can replace chopped onions with finely chopped spring onions.
  4. For a perfect cover, the batter should be neither too thick nor too thin. The consistency of the batter must be thick flowing. So while making the batter, always add water little by little. This way you prevent the batter from turning it watery.
  5. For an added taste, you can add 1 teaspoon of ginger garlic paste.
