Khandvi-a gujarati delicacy


HEY
This months Indian cooking challenge was very interesting. Srivalli challenged us to cook khandvi and she gave us two recipes which we could use. I have used Latajis here

The original recipe is here

INGREDIENTS

Gram flour 1/3 cup

Sour curds 1/3 cup

Water 1 cup

Green chilli -ginger paste 2 tsp

Turmeric powder 1/4 tsp

Asafoetida 1/4 tsp

Sugar 1 tsp

Salt as per taste

Cooking oil 3 tbsp
TEMPERING


Cooking oil 2 tsp

Mustard seeds 1tsp

Sesame seeds 2tsps
GARNISHING

Fresh grated coconut 2 tbsp

Coriander leaves 2 tbsp

PREPARATION

Grease a thali well and keep it aside

Mix gram flour, salt , green chilli-ginger paste,beaten curds and water in a bowl. Mix thoroughly and the mixture should be free of any lumps.

Now add sugar, turmeric powder and asafoetida.

Heat oil in a thick bottom pan and add this batter.

Cook in a medium flame stirring continuously.

When the mixture turns a little light brown and when it starts leaving the sides of the pan , the batter is cooked and is ready to be transferred to the thali

Transfer it to the prepared thali and spread evenly and as thin as possibleon the thali.This should be done quickly as the batter thickens on cooling

Cut into strips and roll into spirals. Keep aside

Heat a pan with oil, add the mustard and sesame seeds.When it crackles add this to the prepared rolls

Garnish these beauties the fresh grated coconut and cilantro

VERDICT
Absolutely delicious. Take a bite and it just glides down your throat. One of those dishes, which we will never be tired of cooking as well as eating. Thank you Srivalli and Lataji for this lovely recipe
