How to Make Jholi

  • Jholi can be made of besan or rice flour.
  • Mix besan, 1/4 tsp turmeric powder and 1/2 tsp salt.
  • Make it into a thick paste by gradually adding water and continuously folding it with a spatula.
  • Now mix the paste with curd and water. Churn the mixture well.
  • Take a pan and heat the oil.
  • Add garlic cloves in the hot oil.
  • When the garlic turns light brown, add jeera, red chillies and hing.
  • Immediately pour the curd mix into the frying pan.
  • Add turmeric powder, dry coriander powder, red chillies powder and salt.
  • Cook till the gravy starts thickening and the raw smell of besan is gone.
  • Let the jholi cook for about 10-15 minutes.
  • If you are using rice flour then cook it for a few minutes more.
  • Add more water to keep the consistency thin.
  • Before taking it off from heat, add a handful of chopped spinach leaves or chopped spring onion leaves.
  • Cook for few more minutes till the leaves are tender.
  • Garnish with a table spoon full of ghee, coriander leaves and green chillies (slit apart into two pieces).
  • Serve with steamed rice.
