  1. In a bowl, mix besan, chilli paste, ginger paste, salt, turmeric powder well.
  2. Add curd and then add eno and mix well. Keep aside for a couple of minutes.
  3. Pour into a greased pan and steam till cooked. You can also cook in the microwave on high power for about 4-5 minutes. (This is a tip I got from my dear friend Anu...Thanks Anu 🙂 ).
  4. Check by inserting a toothpick at the centre. If it comes clean, it is cooked. Cut into squares.
  5. For garnish:.
  6. Heat the oil. Add mustard seeds. When it starts to splutter add the curry leaves and green chillies.
  7. Add the water mix and let it heat up. Switch off when it's just short of boiling.
  8. Add the coriander leaves. Pour this on top of the squares. Leave it for sometime till the water is absorbed.
  9. Garnish with grated coconut(optional).
  10. Enjoy!!!
