A healthy finger food made with chickpea and yogurt.


  • 1 cup chickpea flour/besan
  • 1 cup sour yogurt
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon asafoetida/hing
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1 inch ginger, grated
  • salt


  1. Arrange some steel plates/glass chopping boards or cookie sheets to spread the batter. You can also spread the batter on the counter top. I used back side of a cookie sheet and two wooden chopping boards.
  2. Brush the back of the cookie sheet and the wooden boards very lightly with some oil. Then, rub it using a kitchen paper towel to make sure it’s not too oily.
  3. Keeping the spreading utensils ready is very important as you have to spread the batter immediately while it’s hot. Once the utensils are ready, start with the batter.
  4. Add water and sour yogurt in a microwave proof bowl and mix it properly.
  5. Then, add asafoetida, chili powder, turmeric powder, grated ginger and give it a mix.
  6. Sift the chickpea flour to the bowl and whisk until it’s mixed properly.
  7. Add salt and mix it one last time to make sure that there are no lumps.
  8. Put it in the microwave without the lid and let it cook for 4 minutes in high heat.
  9. Take it out and whisk it properly. Put it back in the microwave for 3 more minutes.
  10. Take it out and whisk it once again. At this point, the consistency should be thick enough.
  11. Spread the thick batter quickly on the back of the cookie sheets or chopping boards. Spread it as thinly as you can.
  12. Let it rest for 2 to 3 minutes.
