  1. Onions – 2.
  2. Ginger-Garlic Paste – 1 tsp.
  3. Turmeric powder – 1 tsp.
  4. Red Chilly Powder – 1 tsp.
  5. Curry leaves – 1-2.
  6. Coriander Powder – 1 tsp.

Now take a heavy bottomed vessel and add 1 tsp of oil and spread the oil all over the vessel. Now pour the batter into it and let it cook on low flame for two minutes. The batter will solidify and become thick gradually. Now take a plate and spread little oil over it, spread the batter in it and press it downwards with the palm of your hand and let it dry for two minutes. Now cut out any shape from it. Keep the patties aside.

Step 3

Now shallow fry these gram flour patties in a non-stick pan until golden browned. Keep aside.

Step 4

In a vessel add 1 tsp of oil and some curry leaves. Now grind the onion to a paste. Next add coriander powder, cumin powder, turmeric powder, red chilly powder, sabzi masala,garam masala, tomato puree and fry it for two minutes. Now add the onion and ginger-garlic paste and fry again. When the masalas are done add some water to the masala mix to make the gravy. It should boil for three minutes. Now add the shallow fried patties and switch off the gas.

Garnish it with some cilantro and some fresh cream, though the second ingredient is optional.
