- 1-1/2 cup besan - 1/4 cup wheat flour - 2 tablespoons rava (semolina) - 2 cup freshly chopped fenugreek - 1/2 cup freshly chopped coriander - 1/2 cup freshly chopped spinach - 1 teaspoon ginger - green chilies paste or semi crushed - 1/2 teaspoon red chili powder - 1/3 teaspoon turmeric - 1/4 teaspoon asafoetida - 1 teaspoon garam masala - 2 teaspoon sesame seeds - 5-7 whole peppers- semi crushed ( for this dish you need semi-crushed) - 10-15 Whole Coriander Seeds - semi crushed (For this dish you need semi - crushed) - 1/4 th teaspoon soda bi carb (baking soda) OR Eno - fruit Salt - salt and sugar to taste (Mine are on the sweeter side) - oil for frying
Mix the besan (gram flour) wheat flour and rava, Add all the rest of the ingredients except soda / eno and mix well.
Now add washed and chopped fenugreek and coriander, little water to make a thick batter make sure there are no lumps (the consistency should be slightly thick than that of dosa batter)
Let this mixture sit for 10-15 minutes. Meanwhile, Heat the oil on high, in a wok or fryer. Add soda bi carb / Eno just before frying and mix well.
As the oil is heated take some 3- 4 teaspoons of hot oil and add this to the batter (this makes the gotas crunchier and fluffier).
Slowly, add a tablespoon of the mix to the heated oil and fry it till it turns golden brown allover. Simultaneously fry 4-5 gotas at a time.
Remove and drain on a napkin/tissue paper so that excess oil is been soaked if any.
