Steamed Chickpeas Dumplings

Seriously since i came back to Paris after my India trip,am trying to keep myself away from deep fried snacks and masala items eventhough i wont say am dieting..I was planning for making some sundals with chickpeas yesterday for our snacks,finally i decided to make  them as a guilt free snacks,yep as steamed dumplings with soaked and grounded chickpeas with some spices, serve this delicious and satisfying dumplings with any sort of spicy chutneys or simply with ketchup or chilli sauce, am damn sure that you will definitely have a fabulous and nutritious snacks..


3cups Soaked chickpeas
3nos Garlic cloves
1/4tsp Asafoetida powder
1no Onion (chopped)
1/2tsp Grated ginger
4nos Dry red chillies
Salt
Few coriander leaves (chopped)

Grind the soaked chickpeas,garlic cloves, asafoetida powder,dry red chillies as a coarse paste, finally add the chopped onions,chopped coriander leaves,grated ginger and salt, mix everything well..

Make small lemon sized balls from the grounded paste and steam cook them for 10-15minutes in an idly cooker and enjoy warm with hot sauces or chutneys..

hi Priya,

First of all thanks 4 sharing such a huge collection of receipes....I tried this steamed dumplings..but unfortunately I misread the receipe and cooked the chickpeas before grinding..so steaming is not working..any ideas to use the chickpeas mixture.?...

thanks....

Priya said... Reply To This Comment

Hi Padma, u can use it as stuffing with few onions and ginger garlic paste as masala for parathas or pakodas by just smashing and combining gram flour and rice flour..hope this helps..

padma said... Reply To This Comment
