These are some of the easiest Indian snacks to make. You can use any vegetable you like, but we recommend the softer vegetables such as peppers, eggplant, onions, and thinly sliced potatoes.
- 2 cups gram (chickpea) flour
- 1 teaspoon red chile powder
- teaspoon salt
- teaspoon turmeric
- teaspoon baking powder
- Peanut oil for frying
- Thinly sliced green chiles, onions, eggplant, and potatoes
In a bowl, combine the gram flour, chile powder, salt, turmeric, and baking powder and mix well. Add water and mix well until the batter has a creamy consistency. Heat the oil in a deep pan until water splatters when sprinkled on it.
Dip the vegetables in the batter, drop them in the oil a few at a time, and cook them until they are golden brown.
