4 cups grated Carrot

3 cups Chickpea flour (Senagapindi, Besan)

1 cup powdered peanuts/groundnuts (roasted or raw)

1/2 cup grated Coconut (fresh or dry)

1 tsp Cumin seeds

a handful of cilantro, chopped finely

a small piece of ginger, skin peeled and chopped finely

chopped Green chillies or chilli powder, as needed (we added 6 Green chillies)

a pinch of soda

salt as needed

oil to Deep Fried


  1. Add all the ingredients (except the oil) in a bowl and mix together to make a thick dough using a very little water. Keep aside.
  2. Pour oil in a deep skillet and heat. When it becomes hot, take small batches of the dough, shape into a small circle and drop carefully into the hot oil.
  3. When they become cooked and change colour, remove from the hot oil and place on a plate covered with paper towel.
  4. Let them cool for some time before you serve.
  5. Repeat the same process with the remaining dough/batter.
