The amount of water given in this recipe seems to be way off, at least for the besan which I was using. Since it also describes the consistency, compared to hot cake batter, I was able to avoid watering down the batter too much. I used cumin instead of ajwain in this, and wasn't very happy with the overall seasoning. It seemed as if something was missing. JMO
