salt-to taste
maida/all purpose flour flour-1/2 cup
fine semolina flour (fine sooji) - 2 tbsp
red chilli powder-1 tsp (as per your taste)
oil-3 tbsp
asafetida/hing-2-3 pinches
cumin seeds-1 tsp (opt)
turmeric powder-1/2 tsp
oil-for deep frying


Mix flour, semolina,flour,salt,cumin seeds,asafetida,chili powder,oil together.

Add water as needed to make firm but smooth dough. Cover with damp cloth and set aside at least for ten minutes.

Knead the dough for another minute and divide into four equal parts.Take each part of the dough and make a flat ball shape.

Roll it like chapathi.Prick with a fork all over the roti.Using sharp knife,cut into square shape pieces. (you can use cookie cutters of any shape)

Another side heat oil in a frying kadai on medium heat.Place few paare in oil and fry in medium flame.Don`t load kadai with too many and fry them until both sides are light golden-brown.

After Besan Paare come to room temperature they should become crisp.
