Recipe type: Breakfast
Cuisine: Bengali
Serves: 1 dozen
  • Bengal gram flour: 1 cup
  • Baking powder: ½ tsp
  • Turmeric powder: ½ tsp
  • Red chilli powder: ½ tsp
  • Salt: ¼ tsp
  • Water: ½
  • Onion: 1, finely chopped
  • Green chilli: 3, finely chopped
  • Mustard oil or White Oil for deep frying
  1. Mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl except baking powder. Add water gradually little by little and keep whisking till batter becomes fluffy and lump free. Don’t add entire water together; this will make a large lump. Add little water, whisk to mix it thoroughly and then add again and so on. This will ensure lump free smooth matter.
  2. Take a small bowl full of water; add few drops of batter in it. If the droplets settle in water without mixing batter is perfect for fuluri. But if the droplets get dissolved in water batter is too thin for fuluri; add more besan and whisk again.
  3. Now add baking powder and mix lightly.
  4. Fold onion and chopped green chilli in the batter without disturbing the aeration.
  5. Take any deep bottomed pan which is suitable for deep frying and heat oil on medium flame. The depth of the pan should be more than 2”. Once oil is not turn down the flame to simmer.
  6. To do a test whether the oil is ready or not dip a spoon in the batter, shake off slightly and allow to flow the droplets of batter in hot oil. If the droplets go down and float back on top sizzling oil is ready. If they float immediately cool down the oil slightly by turning it off for 2 mins. If droplets settle at the bottom for more than few seconds oil is too cold to fry fuluri.
  7. Take 1 tbsp of batter and slide in hot oil carefully. You may take small portion of batter in your palm to do the same. Don’t just drop the batter coated patty in hot oil, slowly slide it in. this way there will be no oil spluttering.
  8. Keep the flame on low-medium and cook besan fuluri for 3-5 mins. By the time fuluri will float to surface and keep rotating themselves.
  9. Flip gently on other side and cook for another 3-4 mins on medium flame. If fuluri is evenly coloured and puffed up, your besan er fuluri is ready. Remove from oil with slotted spoon and keep on kitchen towels to get rid of excess oil.
  10. Serve immediately with Muri Chanachur ar Cha.
