In a large bowl, mix the besan with 1 cup of water to form a smooth batter. Set aside for 10 minutes.
Coarsely grind ginger, garlic, green chillies, curry leaves and fennel seeds together. Avoid using water.
In a non-stick kadhai, heat oil. Add mustard seeds, cumin seeds and asafoetida.
Add the ground masala paste to the kadhai. Mix well.
Add turmeric powder and salt. Then add the remaining 1 cup of water, stir and bring to a boil.
Now, lower the flame and pour in the besan batter prepared earlier, while stirring continuously. Take care that lumps are not formed.
Continue mixing for around 5 minutes till the mixture thickens. It will get a sticky dough-like consistency.
Grease a thali and transfer the vadi mixture to it. Flatten it carefully using your palm/ bottom of a bowl/ spatula. Whatever you use, ensure it is also greased.
Spread the mixture evenly. Garnish with coconut, coriander and sesame seeds. Press these lightly into the mixture.
Allow to cool for 5 minutes and then cut into the desired shapes (diamond/ square/ triangle). The besan vadi is ready to eat.
