Khandvi-a gujarati delicacy
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
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
Cooking oil 2 tsp
Mustard seeds 1tsp
Sesame seeds 2tsps
Fresh grated coconut 2 tbsp
Coriander leaves 2 tbsp
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
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
