1) Add water in chickpea flour and make medium thick batter of uniform consistency. Remove all the lumps.
2) Heat 2-3 tbsp oil in a wok. Add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, Asafoetida powder, Turmeric, Curry leaves, green chilies. Fry for few seconds. If you are using garlic then add the same. Add chopped onion. Add 1/2 tsp salt and fry onion until it become golden brown.
3) Once the onion is done, add chickpeas batter and start whisking, add little water. The heat could create lumps in the batter, so it’s better to whisk immediately by adding enough water.
4) Keep the heat on medium. Add kokam / tamarind and salt if needed. And bring to boil for around 4-5 minutes. Give a nice stir. Garnish with Cilantro.

Serve hot with Rice or bhakari (Maharashtrian Flat bread)
