“Patwadi” Aka Besan Fudge !! These savory besan bites will truly leave you spell bound !! A Mahastrian specialty, It is usually served as a side dish, Or you can even make a curry outta it, I have still not explored the curry part 🙂  But gonna try it soon for sure. Again a quick and easy one, You see how lazy I am, I always go for recipes which can be done Jhatpat, Minimum time in the kitchen !! That’s my mantra 😀 But no compromise with Taste Boss !! And these are so very delicious.. Maybe next time you host a party, serve it as a starter and amaze your  guests 😉
I came across this recipe from my FB friend, Nutan Shenoy Kini,  She lives in Mumbai and She’s got an amazing array of Mahastrian recipes.. This one is from her treasures.. The moment I read the recipe, I was wanting to try this out. So here goes the recipe, Hope you guys enjoy it 🙂

  • Water – 2 cups
  • Green chilies – 10
  • Ginger-garlic paste – 2 tbsp

  • Salt to taste
  • Turmeric powder – 1/4 tsp
  • Asafoetida (hing) – 1 tsp
  • Oil – 2tbsp + to grease
  • Coriander leaves and scraped coconut – For garnish (I didn’t use scraped coconut, as I didn’t have it)


  • In a bowl, whisk the besan, water, salt, turmeric powder together until it is well blended and smooth. Set aside
  • Dry roast the cumin seeds. Cool it, and grind it to a paste with green chillies.
  • Heat oil in a pan, Add the cumin paste and saute till fragrant, next add the hing and the ginger garlic paste and continue to saute for a minute more.
  • Now add the besan mixture, and cook on a low heat until it is well blended and homogenous, and a mass is formed.
