The key to making chatpata pani and besan pakoda at home are

For chatpata pani

  • Firstly, in chatpata Pani amount of mint leaves is lesser than in coriander leaves. also using slightly cold water while grinding paste helps to maintain its green color.
  • I use tamarind pulp and sugar to give a sweet and sour taste to chatpata pani. You can adjust the amount of spiciness and sweetness depending on your choice.
  • Lastly, pani tastes great when it is slightly spicy and served chilled.

For besan pakoda

  • Firstly, the consistency of the besan batter has to be thick and pouring. So add water gradually into the batter.
  • Whisk besan batter in one direction so air particle incorporates in it and it becomes light and fluffy.
  • Fry besan pakoda on medium flame till it becomes crispy and cooked properly from the inside.
  • Lastly, soak pakoda for 1-2 hrs into chatpata pani so it will absorb its flavor and become soft and juicy.
