  1. Preeti, I wanted to make bafauri when we did Indian states 3 years but could not find any recipes. From what I read online, I thought it was a sweet. Couple of years ago one reader left a comment that bafauri is not a sweet but a savory dish, kind of kadhi made with besan chila. And you have it as a steamed snacked.!! Mystery of bafauri continues!!
    Regardless, steamed bafauri looks delicious!!
