Corn and potato handvo with coconut sauce, the innovation here is not just in the handvo, but in the accompaniment too! why settle for normal chutney or sauce when you can be different there too – try making this lovely coconut sauce instead! handvo is usually made with a batter of rice and urad dal, but here it is made using vegetables, corn, rawa etc. Coconut milk lends its unique flavour to this dish, but remember to use thick coconut milk.
