Excellent and easy recipe, love you step by step photos. I have to try this soon. I remember eating a gujrati snack (not dhokla or pital or handvoh), which was made by stirring besan with some spices directly on gas. Very yummy, any ideas what that is called?
Thanks for continuing to post such great recipes. Love them all, Meghana
