I hope you were happy with Gatte Ka Pulao from Rajasthan. Today, lets explore the cuisine of Sikkim which is land locked on all sides and is surrounded by the Himalayas.  It is a popular tourist destination owing to the picturesque locations. 

Their cuisine is primarily noodle based and momos figure prominently on their dining tables. But here I feature this snack which is very healthy and unique in taste.

I have come to know that these fritters (without the spring onion) are fairly popular in other parts of the country specially during the fasting days, locally known as 'Vrat Ka Khana'.

Recipe Source - here  and here
Ingredients - 

Buckwheat Flour 1/2 cup
Baking Powder 1/8 tsp
Spring Onion, finely chopped 2 Tbsp
Salt as needed
Turmeric 1/8 tsp
Oil to deep fry


Method Of Preparation -

In a mixing bowl, add the flour, baking powder, turmeric and salt. Mix well and add the spring onions as well. Add water just enough to make a thick batter.

Heat oil in a kadai/wok and after the oil is hot enough, drop teaspoon fulls of batter and let them fry until they are crisp and done.

Remove onto paper towels to drain excess oil.

Serve it chutney of your choice.

Preparation Time 20 min
Serves 1-2
