Step 1: Making the besan mixture
In a plate put the besan in and put 1tbs turmeric, 1tbs red chili powder, 1tbs coriander powder, and salt as per taste and mix everything well.
Now lightly and gradually sprinkle water with hands and knead the besan so that it becomes course and small droplets like shapes are formed. Make sure not to put so much of water as we do not need the besan to be lumpy only small droplets and not even too big.
Settle the droplets made to one side of the plate and keep aside.
Step 2: Frying up the besan
In a medium kadhai put 4-5tbs of oil and put a little cumin seeds in and when the seeds are brown put the besan droplets in and fry a little for 2-3mins. When the droplets are fried put the rest of the besan in and fry them as well.
Step 3: Making the masala
Now put the kadhai on gas and pour 2 big spoonful of oil and heat up. And now in a small bowl put 2tbs of coriander powder, 1tbs of red chili powder, 1 ½ tbs of salt and 1tbs of turmeric and make a solution with a little water.
Now put 1tbs of cumin seeds and a pinch of asafetida in the oil and fry it. Now pour the water mixture and fry it as well.
When the masala starts to separate oil put the fried besan in and mix well and fry a little. Put the butter milk and mix well.
When it starts to boil cover with lid but not entirely and cook on low flame.
Stir with a ladle and check if it’s cooked well or not. If it has thickened and karara doesn’t separate water then the food is ready.
Serve hot with a little fresh coriander garnishing!
