"This is a really tasty snack we usually have in our country, with tea, on a rainy day. Besan is ground chick peas; it's also known as gram flour, and you can find it at Indian stores. Serve with ketchup or chili sauce for dipping."

Very Tasty and easy to do. Had a bit of trouble finding the right flour by the right name. Ended up with Chana Flour which is Besan which is chick pea.
Used this recipe tonight - instead of mixing the vegetables in with the flour mixture, we just dipped the veggies in the flour mixture, then put them in the fondue pot. Had to thin out the flour mixture with extra water - but the combination of cumin & chili powder was delicious with the veggies (we used sweet potatoes, potatoes, broccoli, onions, zucchini, mushrooms, & cauliflower - yum!).
Where I lived in England and Canada these were called Onion Bhagi's (spelling varies). This recipe was good. I'm sure there are many ways to make these and I thought I followed this as directed, but something was missing. I will keep searching for the "perfect" recipe.
