  • the batter has a medium thick consistency and coated the backside of the spoon very well.
  • whisk the batter for 2-3 minutes, so air particles incorporate into the batter and make it fluffy.
  • rest batter of 15-20 minutes, so besan (gram flour) is soaked properly.
For masala
  • cool down boiled potatoes completely so there will be no moisture in them.
For green chutney
  • Use ice cubes or cold water while grinding chutney
