Besan Tarkari/Besan Ki Sabji/Gramflour Dumplings Curry

Regional cuisines of India shares many delightful dishes with pantry friendly ingredients. Am amazed to see our own Indian cuisine is loaded with varieties of dishes you can cook in an ease. Our Regional cuisines rocks, and whenever i cross a new dish from any part of India, i dont forget to bookmark them. Obviously my bookmarked lists is overflooding since a long and i have couple of dishes to dish out very soon. You might have noticed that i dont hesitate a second to try new dishes as i love to explore other style of cuisine than sticking with my usual cooking style. Am a person who love to try and test especially if the recipe calls for simple ingredients. One of my recent trial from Odisha cuisine is this Besan Tarkari which means as gramflour dumplings cooked in spicy curry.

Besan Tarkari, Besan Ki Sabji
This curry is completely vegan, glutenfree and definitely an interesting dish to give a try. Actually this  dish goes for a facebook group event in which i have been a member since few months. Every month either we cook with Alphabets or Recipe swap, and vice versa. Since i like challenges, i couldnt stop myself to join this group. This month's challenge is Recipe Swap and i have been paired with Ankita Dash of Food Express Odisha. Ankita shares many delicious Odia dishes which are quite unknown for me. Obviously i was completely lost when i went through her space and i felt like making few of her odia dishes immediately, yes her blogs rocks. However this Besan tarkari caught my attention as this dish calls for different cooking process. Trust me, you should definitely give a try to this dish. And we loved it.
