    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
