Serves Preparation Time Cooking Time
4 People 10 – 15 Minutes  15 – 20 Minutes


  • 1 big carrot
  • 8 french beans
  • 1 medium size potato
  • A quarter of a cabbage
  • 1.5 cups besan
  • 1/2 cup rice powder
  • 1/2 tsp chilli powder
  • 2 green chillies
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tsp ginger-garlic paste


Step 1

Chop the vegetables into thick pieces and the beans into 1 inch pieces.

Step 2

In a bowl, mix besan with chopped green chillies, chilli powder, rice powder, ginger-garlic into a thick paste with little oil and water.

Step 3

The besan should merely coat the veggies and should not be runny.

Step 4

Heat oil in a deep pan on medium flame.

Step 5

Check if the oil is hot enough by dropping a little ball of the batter. If the batter bubbles and comes up to the top, the oil is ready.

Step 6

Now, drop the besan coated veggies into the pan slowly and fry on medium flame till the batter turns golden brown.

Step 7

Transfer to absorbent paper and later serve hot with chutneys of your choice.
