Khandvi /Khandvi Recipe

Khandvi is a very famous Gujarati snack made from besan or gram flour .Its called suralichya vadya in Marathi .Though it's easy it can be tricky on your first attempt.
Right from childhood I have been a fan of gujarati snacks ..all thanks to my school friends who brought variety of Gujarati snacks for Tiffin/lunch box. Most fav being khatta dhokla I thoroughly enjoyed khandvi and other snacks a s well .

Khandvi is actually easy to make but it does require some practice to get it perfect .I still remember my first trail with khandvi back in college days I was super excited to get it right in the first attempt all thanks to my bestie who was a Gujarati and taught me many savoury and sweet dishes from Gujarati cuisine.

1 cup besan/gram flour
1 cup curds thick
2 cup water
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
Salt to taste
1 and 1/2  tsp ginger green chilli paste

2 tsp oil
1 tsp mustard seeds
a pinch of asafoetida/hing
coriander leaves and fresh grated coconut to garnish

  • Mix together besan green chilli and ginger paste ,curds salt .
  • Mix with a whisk then add water and whisk to a lump free batter
  • Grease 3steel  thalis/ plate with oil
  • Pour the batter in a nonstick kadhai/pan and cook over medium flame

  • Keep stirring continuously till it becomes thick 
  • it takes about 10 to 12 minutes to get the desired consistency.
  • Once its thick and start leaving sides ,switch the gas off and quickly pour it in the greased thali(backside).
  • Pour it and spread with spatula as thin as possible
  • let it cool ,then cut into strips with knife and roll each strip  tightly to form khandvi
  • Meanwhile prepare the tadka/tempering by heating oil then add a pinch of asafoetida/hing , mustard seeds,curry leaves 
  • Pour the tadka over the khandvi and garnish with scraped coconut and coriander leaves .
  • Enjoy delicious khandvi with a cup of chai or coffee or with any chutney.

Some recipes call for lemon juice I  have never used ,you can add 2 to 3 drops while mixing the batter
Keep stirring till you get thick batter
to test you can take a small amount of batter and spread on a small greased plate,if it rolls well itss ready if not it needs to be cooked more .
You can also add curry leaves and green chillies to the tadka
