चना का बचका बनाने की प्रक्रिया:

  1. सादे और स्वच्छ पानी में 6 घंटे के लिए काले चने को भिगोएँ। फिर उस पानी से काले चने को निकाल लें और साफ पानी से फिर से धो लें।
  2. अब भीगे काले चने को एक मिश्रण कटोरे में डालें और इसमें बारीक कटा हुआ प्याज, हरी मिर्च, अदरक और करी पत्तों को जोड़ दें।
  3. इसके बाद बेसन और हल्दी पाउडर जोड़ें।
  4. सूखी सामग्री में अनुसार स्वाद के अनुसार नमक जोड़ें और फिर उन्हें अच्छी तरह से मिलाएं।
  5. अब सूखी सामग्री में धीरे-धीरे पानी डालें, ताकि कोई गांठ नहीं बने। याद रखें, तैयार किया हुआ घोल न ज्यादा पतला हो और न ज्यादा गाढ़ा हो। तैयार किया हुआ घोल मध्यम स्थिर्ता का होना चाहिए।
  6. फिर एक कढ़ाई में थोड़ा सरसों का तेल डालकर गरम करें। जब तेल पूरी तरह गरम होजाए तो आँच को मध्यम स्तर तक कम करें।गर्म तेल में एक कल्छी से थोड़ा घोल सावधानी से डालें, ताकि घोल गर्म तेल में गोल आकार में फैल जाए।
  7. अब मध्यम आँच पर धीरे-धीरे तलें, जब तक कि बचका एक तरफ से अच्छे से लाल न हो जाए। फिर बचका को दूसरी तरफ से तलने के लिए पलट दें।
  8. जब बचका अच्छी तरह दोनों तरफ से पक जाए और क्रिस्पी हो जाए तो इसे तेल से इसे प्लेट में निकाल दें। इसी तरीके से बाकी घोल का बचका तैयार करें। गर्म और क्रिस्पी चना का बचका परोसने  के लिए तैयार हैं। आप गर्म चावल, भूजिया और दाल या किसी करी के साथ इन क्रिस्पी चना का बचका को परोसें और इस स्वदिश्ट व्यंजन का आनंद लें।
