  • To marinate:
  • 1 tsp ginger paste
  • 1 tsp garlic paste
  • 1 tsp black pepper powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • For the rest:
  • 1-1/4 cup besan flour
  • 2 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 2 large onions sliced thinly
  • 2 tbsp chopped coriander leaves
  • 2 tbsp chopped mint leaves
  • 2 tbsp chopped curry leaves
  • 3 green chillies chopped
  • 1 egg slightly beaten
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes
  • Oil for frying


  • Marinate the chicken with the "To marinate" ingredients for minimum 1/2 an hour. The more you keep, the more tastier it becomes!!!
  • Add all the remaining ingredients except the oil into the chicken and mix well to form a thick batter. You may use little water, if you find it too dry. Adjust salt accordingly.
  • Heat oil in a kadai. When it is hot, drop spoonfuls of the mixture and fry on meduim-low heat till light brown in color.
  • Drain on kitchen towel and serve for your evening chai!!!
