  • Line a cookie sheet with foil, grease, set aside.
    Combine dry ingredients of besan squares in a bowl.
  • Heat oil in pan on medium. Pour the besan flour paste slowly in a stream and stir continuously so that there are no lumps in it.
    It will thicken and eventually steam but does not need to boil.
  • Cook and keep stirring until the mixture turns thick about 4-5 minutes.
    Dump it on greased cookie tray. With wet hands or spatula pat the dough to make it flat about 3/4" thickness.
  • Let it set for 10-15 minutes, cut into squares.
    Heat 1/4 cup oil in a pan. Shallow fry the squares in batches of 7-8 until slightly golden. Remove on paper towel.
  • In the leftover oil add ground onion, fry for a minute
    Add ginger garlic paste and fry till it gets golden brown.
  • Throw in turmeric, red chilli powder and tomato puree and mix well.
    Keep cooking add a tbsp of water if the masala is sticking at the bottom.
  • Pour in water and gobhi stalks. Bring it to boil.
    Reduce heat, cook covered for 5 minutes. Slide in besan squares. Cook for another 1 minute and it is done.
