Now take gram flour in big bowl, add chilli powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder, garam masala powder, lemon juice, salt, asafoetida (hing) powder, 1 teaspoon oil, water as needed and mix it properly. Be careful by adding water; do not make it too runny or thicker. You need to maintain the consistency to form the mix. It should be smooth paste like batter. Leave it for at least an hour and add chopped coriander.
