To begin with Pitor Ki Sabzi, we will firstly make pitors. In a large mixing bowl, add besan, yogurt, water, ginger, green chilies and mix everything well to form lump free batter.

Heat oil in a deep pan or kadhai, add cumin seeds and allow it to crackle. Add hing and mix.

Increase the heat to high and carefully add the besan batter and whisk it continuously to avoid lump formation. Cook the batter until it gets thick and starts leaving the pan.

Immediately, transfer the batter on a greased plate or thali and level it up with the help of a flat spoon.

Cool the prepared pitor for 45 mins or until it is ready to be cut into pieces.

Now, cut the pitor depending upon the shape and size you prefer to make.

Heat little oil in a broad flat pan and shallow fry the pitors from both the sides until brown and crisp. Keep the fried pitor aside.

The next step is to make the curry. In a bowl, add curd, red chili powder, haldi powder and coriander powder. Beat the mixture very well.

Heat oil in a kadhai, add cumin seeds and allow it to crackle. Add broken red chilies and fry for a few seconds. Add green chilies and fry for few more seconds.

Reduce the heat to low and add the curd mixture and whisk continuously until everything blends well and the spices are cooked.

Add water according to the thickness of the gravy you prefer and bring it to a boil. Add salt and simmer the gravy for about 15 mins.

Add fried pitors and simmer for another 3 to 4 mins. Be gentle to avoid breaking the pitors. After 3-4 minutes, switch off the heat and it is ready to be served.

Serve Pitor Ki Sabzi with steamed rice or Whole Wheat Lachha Paratha and Lauki raita for a complete meal.
