Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds and cumin seeds.
Once they begin to crackle, add chopped garlic and check till it becomes light golden.
Then add a finely chopped jalapeno along with chopped onions, paprika and turmeric powder.
Saute till the onions becomes translucent. Now add the flour batter to the pan and quickly mix it. Add salt too at this point.
Lower the flame and cook it covered for 5 minutes. The mixture will begin to thicken and become a lump. Once the mixture doesn't stick to the pan anymore, consider it done.
Garnish it with chopped cilantro.
Serve Maharashtrian Besan Pitla with bhakri (most preferred combo) but it tastes good with any bread or rice. Spread it on a bread and enjoy it like a sandwich or use it as a dip.
