Soak the soya chunks in water for 5 minutes and then squeeze out the water. Grind it in the mixer.
Grate the bottle gourd, and add the grinded soya chunks to it. Add all dry spices and both flours and mix well. Add water if required. It will form like a dough.
Take a small portion on your palm and roll it in oval shape and then press against your palm and try to give the cube or cuboid shape. Do the same with remaining dough.
In a pan, add oil and mustard seeds, let it crackle and then add the tots. Roast it for about 5 minutes until it's golden brown.
Add little water and cover the lid and let it cook through. Continue roasting it until you get crisp brown coating. Keep a watch so that it doesn't get burnt.
Garnish with chopped spring onion/garlic and enjoy with yogurt or your favourite dip! Enjoy!
