Recipe: Besan fried bread

DSC_0525

Frying bread in a spicy creamy batter has never tasted better. I bring you, besan bread. Besan is a special, Indian, black-eyed pea flour (as so my mother says). It’s frequently used in Indian dishes, like in curry. It’s a pretty simple recipe and takes about 15-20 minutes to make!

1. Cut some onions and pour out around 3-4 tablespoons besan into a mixing bowl.

2. Add the onions to the bowl, along with any spices you would like. We used salt, turmeric, red peppers, garam masala and black peppers.

3. Add a small amount water (until it becomes semi-liquidly) and stir until you get a creamy (like pancake dough) consistency.

4. Turn on your stove and add whichever oil you prefer.

5. Cut your bread to your desired shape (I like triangles) and cover it in the batter.

7. Make sure you flip the sides! Don’t want a burnt up piece…. unless you are into that… then go for it…
