Delicious recipe that is made with butter milk and gram flour (besan) as the main ingredients. Spicy pakoras deep fried and added to that will make them more special.

Got to read this recipe from Dr.Sanjeev Kapoor’s book Dal and Kadhi. Inspired! Tried it out with few changes to bring in our touch and it came out flawless, with such an authentic taste.
