Make this ahead! It will keep three days covered in the fridge.


  • 1/3 cup besan (chick pea) flour
  • 1/4 cup mashed tofu
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 4 tablespoon margarine
  • 4 hot green chilies
  • 1/4 cup cilantro
  • 1 slice ginger (1/2)
  • 2 tablespoon chopped onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt; to taste
  • 4 slice bread (like sourdough, dark type not recommended)


Put everything but the bread and margarine into the blender/food processor/ other implement of destruction and blend until the herbs are medium chooped.

Pour the resulting batter into a wide shallow dish. (It will keep three days covered in the fridge.)

Melt the margarine in a big skillet or frying pan. Soak one slice of bread at a time in the batter until pretty gloppy, then toss into the skillet and fry until the bottom is medium brown. Flip and cook about another minute.

Serve right off the stove.
