As mentioned earlier these can be prepared in a jiffy, the only time-consuming process will be taken in preparing the veggies, I have used onion, potato, and carrot, in addition, you can add cabbage. So let's get started

First step: In a heavy-bottomed pan, add enough oil for deep frying.

Second step:  Slice the onions, peel the skin from potato and carrot, chop them in thin strips. Slit and add green chilies. In a bowl mix all these vegetables and keep them aside.  

Third step: Now add chickpea flour (besan flour), rice flour, asafoetida, baking soda, red chili powder, salt, and a sprig of curry leaves to the vegetables. Just sprinkle water little by little and gently mix it in such a way the batter coats the vegetables. Finally, pour little hot oil and mix well.

Fourth Step:  Take a small portion from the mixture and drop them gently into the oil.

Fifth Step: Fry it until it turns golden brown, remove and place it in a kitchen towel to drain excess oil. Serve it hot with a cup of hot tea and Enjoy!
