This is the orginal recipe from Sanjiv Kapoor. Since my family dislikes soya and vinegar I have modified it thus.
- If local runner beans or alsandi is available I use them instead of French beans.
- Ghatte—the rajasthani ones. Mix besan with salt, baking powder any spice of choice a little curd to a stiff dough dice it and steam it. Deep frying adds to the taste and calories.
- Lime juice.
