How to make Spicy Besan Poori

  • In a wide bowl, take the besan and wheat flour along with finely chopped green chilies, coriander leaves, and other spices.
  • Mix everything well and slowly add water to knead to a stiff dough.
  • Since it has besan, there is always a high chance of the dough getting very sticky if you want all water initially.
  • Do not rest this as the dough will become very loose.
