|Tomato puree||4 tbsp|
|Mustard oil||100 ml|
|Salt||According to taste|

For the first step, in a pan, add besan and mix one and a half spoon of ginger-garlic paste. To this, add salt and pepper according to taste and one tsp each of haldi, garam masala and red chilli powder and mix them well. Add water to this mixture and bring it to a thin consistency.
In a non-stick pan, add a tsp of ghee and cover the surface of the pan with it. For the next step, pour the besan liquid into the pan and start stirring on low flame.

Cut the dough into squares and finally, put them in the pan. Mix well, making sure that each piece is coated nicely. Cook for two minutes and voila, your easy-peasy besan ki sabzi is ready.
