This is the orginal recipe from Sanjiv Kapoor. Since my family dislikes soya and vinegar I have modified it thus.

  1. If local runner beans or alsandi is available I use them instead of French beans.
  2. 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.
  3. Lime juice.
