Ingredient Substitution Guide


1. Cut the lady fingers, making 6 pieces from one lady finger.

2. Wipe each piece dry with a clean cloth to prevent it from getting jelly-like and sticky.

3. Mix all the ingredients for the batter until smooth. Add the lady fingers to the batter and work in to cover the lady fingers. Leave for 5 minutes only.

4. Deep fry over medium temperature (180 °C/350° F) until crisp (about 10 minutes). Serve.

Tip: Chaat masala can be purchased ready-made and is very spicy. Look for chaat masala containing black salt, dried mango and cumin seeds along with other spices.
