  • 1 bunch methi leaves , washed and finely chopped
  • 1 medium red onion , chopped into small pieces
  • 1/2 cup chickpea or garbanzo bean flour
  • 1/4 cup rice flour
  • 1 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds , slightly crushed
  • 1 tsp aamchoor (mango powder), optional
  • Salt to taste
  • Water to make a batter
  • Oil for deep frying


  • Place all the ingredients in a bowl, mix well, and then add enough water to make a thick batter that clumps together.
  • Heat the oil in a cast-iron pan or kadhai or other frying pan. You want it to get to a point where the batter bubbles and rises immediately when dropped in the oil. If you have a frying thermometer, this should be around 350 degrees. Food fried at this temperature absorbs almost no oil.
  • Drop small lumps of the batter into the oil and fry each side until golden-brown and really crispy.
