- 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


Step 1

Mix the besan (gram flour) wheat flour and rava, Add all the rest of the ingredients except soda / eno and mix well.

Step 2

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)

Step 3

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.

Step 4

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).

Step 5

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.

Step 6

Remove and drain on a napkin/tissue paper so that excess oil is been soaked if any.

Step 7

Now serve with Sweet Tamarind and Date Chutney .
