    Mariya, your kadhi recipe is as great as all your other recipes available on KK! Meanwhile,just wondering, if we could bake the besan dumplings, than deep fry them. In that case, all we need to do is, adding a 1/4 tsp of baking powder in the batter for softness, and , brushing the surface of dumplings with a few drops of oil after arranging them on a tray for baking.
