Monsoon winds are here !!

Brings out a wave of Nostalgia , isn’t it ?

Let's try this hot and delicious Fafda Recipe in cloudy atmosphere !!

Makes: 3 to 4 servings 

Ingredients :-

  • 1 cup besan/ gram flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon ajwain
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper, finely ground
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  •  Salt to taste
  • 1 cup water, or as required
  • A pinch of asafoetida/ hing


  •   Begin by pouring all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
  •  Now add water gradually to the bowl and mix the ingredients well, till everything gets knead into soft dough.
  • Once the dough has been prepared, it still might be sticky. Therefore add oil to it and knead it again for 2-3 minutes more.
  • Once done, divide the dough into 12-15 equal sized portions and make them into small balls.
  • Roll each of these balls into long and thin strips. Ensure that the rolling is done at a stretch to avoid the dough breaking up or sticking to the rolling pin.
  • Now heat the oil in large deep frying pan and slip each of the long dough strips carefully into the pan.
  • Deep-fry the fafda dough strips on low flame for 1-2 minutes, turning them till they are browned on both sides. Remove them from the oil once done and serve the fafdas hot.
  • Serve the Gujarati Fafda along with Gujarati Kadhi and Papaya Salad. 

Happy Monsoon :)
