Besanauti by Madhu Varma



  1. Maida – 2 Cups
  2. Besan – 2 Cups
  3. Refined Oil-4 Tablespoons
  4. Hing -1 Teaspoon
  5. Ajwain- 1 ½ Teaspoons, level
  6. Kalonji– 1 ½ Teaspoons, level
  7. Salt-To Taste
  8. Oil-For Deep Frying

Mix maida , besan , salt , hing , ajwain and kalonji . After mixing it evenly add 3 tablespoons of oil and rub it well, till it becomes granular . Squeeze it to see if it holds together. If it does not, add 1 more tablespoon of oil.  Add water and knead  to make a stiff dough. Roll it out , the size of  a puri ( but not very thin ) . Make 2 or 3 slits in the central area and deep fry it, but regulate the heat so that each Besanauti comes out stiff.

Serve with Aam Kuccha or Tomato Chutney
