Besan Bhurji


Hello friends. Today I’ll be sharing a very simple recipe of Besan Bhurji which I make sometimes in my breakfast menu. It is very tasty, mildly spiced and flavorful and is really made in a jiffy. I like it and hope you too will try making it. So let’s start with the recipe—


  1. Gram Flour or Besan-250 gms
  2. Onion-2
  3. Green Chilly-2
  4. Turmeric Powder- 1tsp
  5. Red Chilly Powder- 1 tsp
  6. Coriander Powder- 1 tsp
  7. Garam Masala- 1 tsp
  8. Dry Mango Powder- 1 tsp
  9. Asafoetida- A pinch
  10. Salted Peanuts-1 tbsp
  11. Freshly Chopped Coriander-A handful

For the tempering:-

  1. Cumin and Carom Seeds- 1 tsp
  2. Vegetable Oil- 3 tbsp


Step 1

Take a bowl. Add gram flour or besan to it. Add peanuts, salt, turmeric powder, red chilly powder, coriander powder, garam masala, dry mango powder and then add water to make a thick batter consistency. Chop the onion and green chilly coarsely. Also, chop the coriander leaves.

Step 2

Step 3

When the onion and green chilly are half fried, keep the gas on medium flame and pour the besan batter in it. And keep on stirring. As we pour the batter it will start to thicken and will get fried. You can sprinkle some more oil in between and then finally switch off the flame and garnish the bhurji with some freshly chopped coriander.

Our Besan Bhurji is done. Serve it with plain paranthas or as a side dish for lunch or dinner platter.
