“This is a really tasty snack we usually have in our country, with tea, on a rainy day. Besan is ground chick peas; it's also known as gram flour, and you can find it at Indian stores. Serve with ketchup or chili sauce for dipping.” - by Natasha
Original recipe yields 16 pieces
- In a medium bowl, mix together the besan, water, salt, chili powder, turmeric, cumin, coriander seeds, onion, and jalapeno pepper until it forms a smooth mixture with no flour lumps.
- Heat the oil in a deep skillet over medium-high heat. When the oil is sizzling hot, drop dough by tablespoonfuls, and fry until golden brown on each side. Drain on paper towels, and serve hot with ketchup or chili sauce for dipping.

"Very Tasty and easy to do. Had a bit of trouble finding the right flour by the right name. Ended up with Chana Flour which is Besan which is chick pea...." See more"
"Used this recipe tonight - instead of mixing the vegetables in with the flour mixture, we just dipped the veggies in the flour mixture, then put them in the fondue pot. Had to thin out the flour mixt..." See moreure with extra water - but the combination of cumin & chili powder was delicious with the veggies (we used sweet potatoes, potatoes, broccoli, onions, zucchini, mushrooms, & cauliflower - yum!)."
