Wonder what to do with those left over food especially rice? Not a problem. I am here to share an easy and delicious recipe that can satisfy your palate. This recipe comes from my mother in law who is an awesome cook and I loved it. This dish tastes best when you make it with Basmati rice.
The main ingredient that gives its taste is Besan and hence the name of the recipe. Besan is a flour made from ground chickpeas. It is used in many countries and is a staple ingredient in Indian cuisine. In the form of a paste with water or yogurt, it is used as a popular facial exfoliant in India.
