Trivia Tadka

Fafda Chutney is a delicious dip served with Gujarati snacks like gathiya and bhajias. Unlike other chutney recipes, this one uses gram flour as itscore ingredient and involves sautéing. This sweet-and-salty dip has some crunch to it and is usually served during tea-time in the morning. During Dussehra season, Gujarais love to eat piping hot jalebis dipped in this crunchy Fafda Chutney. 


  • Chickpea flour (besan) (1 cup)
  • Sour curd (khattadahi) (½ cup)
  • Black salt (kala namak) (½ tsp)
  • Green chillies, chopped (2 to 4)
  • Ginger (adrak) (1 tsp)
  • Coriander leaves (haradhania), chopped (2 tbsp)
  • Asafoetida (hing) (a pinch)
  • Mustard seeds (sarson) (1 tsp)
  • Sugar (1 tsp)
  • Oil (For cooking)
  • Salt (To Taste)


  • In a bowl, blend the besan with two cups of water and half a cup of curd into a smooth consistency.
  • Then, make a fine paste of ginger, green chillies and hara dhania in a grinder and set aside.
  • Heat some oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds once the oil is hot. Add  once the seeds have crackled.
  • Add the besan mixture to the tempering along with the black salt and sugar. Bring this to a boil.
  • As soon as it starts boiling, cook it on a low flame for five minutes, while stirring it frequently.
  • Take it off the stove and add the ginger-chilli-coriander paste. Fresh Fafda Chutney is now ready to be served.
