Instructions
  1. Wash and clean the pumpkin flowers. Cut the stems and keep aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, add besan, rice flour, chilli powder, salt, cumin powder and mix well. Add water little by little to make a batter.
  3. Heat a tawa and put oil on it. Once hot, dip the pumpkin flowers in the batter and place it on the tawa. Sprinkle oil over each pumpkin flower and cook on slow heat so that it gets evenly cooked on both sides and becomes crisp also.
  4. These are normally served on the side with rice , dal and curry, but they’re just as good with a steaming hot cup of tea.
  5. Serve hot as a starter or enjoy as a snack along with tomato sauce or chutney of your choice.
