Khandvi




Khandvi

A popular Gujarati Snack !!!

Makes: 2 thalis

Ingredients

1 cup ( 100 ml ) curd (dahi )
2 cups ( 200 ml ) water
1 cup ( 100 ml ) gram flour ( besan )
1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
½ teaspoon ginger paste
½ teaspoon green chilli paste
2 teaspoon oil
4 – 5 teaspoon grated coconut
1 tablespoon chopped coriander leaves
A pinch asafoetida
¾ teaspoon mustard seeds
1 spring curry leaves

Method

1, Mix curd and water together ( or you can blend in a mixer ) Add gram flour , salt , ginger paste , turmeric powder and green chilli paste. Put the mixture in a heavy- bottomed pan and keep boiling on a very low heat till the mixture starts sticking ( just like thick porridge ). Approximate time will be 7 - 10 minutes.

2, Pour 2 ladle ( or 1/4 cup ) of the mixture on a greased plate evenly ( make very thin layer ) and let it cool.

3, When cool , cut into 2 ‘’ / 4 ‘’ pieces. Now roll them carefully . Sprinkle coriander leaves and coconut.

4, Heat oil in a frying pan. Add mustard seeds. When they start splutter add curry leaves and asfoetida. Pour this seasoning over khandvi. Serve cold.

Tips :

Keep 2 greased thalis ready.

Stir batter ( besan - butter milk ) continuously for 7 - 10 minutes.

You can find a reduction in the quantity and thickness.

Batter should leaves from the sides of the pan and about to stick. Now you can remove the pan from the heat and spread 1/4 cup batter on greased thalis ( inverted greased thalis).
