The famous gujarati ‘ras-puri’ meal is incomplete without fajeto! fajeto cannot be classified as kadhi, dal or subzi… it is a class apart from any other recipe. What else can you expect from a classical preparation of mango juice cooked together with curds, besan and select spices? despite its unique charm and magical taste, fajeto is surprisingly quite light on the stomach!

I think the person in this video is gping too fast. She should slow down her pace.Besides the digital version of the recipe lists jaggery and besan as ingredients but completely misses out in adding that step in the process explaining the besan curd mixture should include jaggery and besan. My request when you upload a recipe make sure it includes details.

Tarla Dalal    The besan curd mixture has a mention about jaggery and besan in the ingredient list. We have mentioned it under ''To Be Mixed Together Into A Smooth Curd-mango Mixture''. Since the mixture has to be only mixed, we have not mentioned it in the procedure. But it has been shown in the video in detail.
