In a mixing bowl mix the besan,chilli powder and salt.Heat approx 4 tsp of oil and add to the flour. Mix well.Slowly add water and mix to form a dropping batter.

Prepare a filling by frying the onions in a little oil. Add chilli powder, salt and garam masala and mix well.Now remove from flame and keep aside.

Cut the sides of the bread slices. Sandwich the onion mixture between two slices and press well. Cut each sandwich into  two to get a triangular shape.
