Recipe of Pithale

Ingredient Name Quantity Unit
Asafoetida To Taste
Salt To Taste
Coriander Leaves To Taste
Green Chilies 3-4 Numbers
Onion 1 Numbers
Gram Flour 1 Cup
Turmeric Powder To Taste
Mustard Seeds 2 Teaspoons
Oil 4 Teaspoons


1. Mix together gram flour, salt and some water for desired consistency. Remove the lumps.

(There is an alternative method for this. First follow the step 2, and add water directly to it. When water starts boiling, add gram flour and stir. Watch out for lumps.)

2. In a deep pan, heat oil. Add mustard seeds, asafoetida and turmeric powder.
Add chopped onions. Give vertical slits to the chilies and add them.

3. When onion pieces become transperent, add the paste of gram flour. Now keep stirring to avoid lump formation.

4. Cover and turn the heat on medium.

5. Remove the lid and stir after 5 minutes. Pithale is ready to serve when the raw smell goes.

6. Garnish with coriander leaves and serve with plain rice or bhakri
