2. Heat a pan. Add 2 tbsp gram flour (besan) and heat it till brown without adding oil. Keep aside.

3. Heat oil. Add the green chillies, salt, little turmeric powder. Cover & cook on low flame till the water of the green chillies dries and they become tender.( sprinkle a little water if you want the chillies to be a little softer)

    1. Anurag, you don't have to add any water. Read carefully ..it says - when the water from the mirchis dries up.
      Just simmer on very low flame and DO NOT ADD WATER.

    2. . Anurag...if you want a little soft texture in the mirchis, sprinkle a little water on them and simmer before adding the besan
