Add salt, garam masala, coriander powder, chilli powder and pepper powder. Mix up all these well. Dry roast besan / chickpea flour until it begins to smell good. Add it here. Do not use unroasted or raw flour. Mix up everything again. Divide the mixture to equal parts. Heat your grill pan with 1 tbsp oil greased and Place them on the hot pan. Grill, while rotating the sticks every 7 to 8 mins. If doing on stove top keep the flame to medium.
