  2. In a cooker add oil, fry jeera, curry leaves and green chillies, chopped. When they begin crackle, add chopped onions and fry till light pink. Add salt, turmeric powder, garam masala powder, amchoor powder, mix well then add bengal gram dal, coriander, water and pressure cook it for 8 whistles.
  3. On a plate, add the pakwan and in a bowl, add dal, sprinkle red chilli powder, amchoor powder, green spicy chutney, tamarind chutney and give a tadka of hot oil on it. Add chopped onions and serve hot.

My Tip:

The pakwan should be crispy, should not be fried like pooris. This is eaten in breakfast.
