Yield: 3 to 4 Pieces
Prep. Time: 10 Mins. + Standing
Cooking Time: 16 to 18 Mins.
[ Standard Measure : 1 cup = 250 ml ]
- Bread Slices – 3 to 4
- Besan – ¾ cup
- Rawa – 1 tbsp.
- Onion (finely chopped) – 1 small
- Tomato (finely chopped) – 1 small
- Green Chilly (finely chopped) – 1 to 2
- Ajwain – ¼ tsp. (optional)
- Red Chilly Powder – ¼ tsp.
- Turmeric Powder – ¼ tsp.
- Hing – a pinch
- Oil – as needed
- Salt – ½ tsp.
Step 1: Take all the ingredients except the oil in a bowl and add about 1/3 cup (80 ml) water. Mix and make a batter (it should have no lumps, like a dosa batter). Keep aside for 15 minutes.
Step 2: Heat a frying pan and drizzle some oil (½ tsp.) on the pan.
Step 3: Dip the slices of bread into the batter and coat them well. Then place them on the frying pan, two at a time and cook them for 3 to 4 minutes on low heat. Drizzle some oil on the top (½ tsp.) before turning over and then cook further for another 3 to 4 minutes. Serve hot.
- The cooking has to be done on low heat as the besan has to cook well.
