Ingredients

Method
  1. Wipe the rice, toovar dal, urad dal, moong dal, gram dal and wheat with a wet cloth, mix and grind dry coarsely (like semolina). Alternatively, soak the cereals and pulses overnight in plenty of water and grind in a mixer and the next day.
  2. Add the sout curds and hot water and make into a thick mixture.
  3. Cover and leave to ferment for at least 6 to 7 hours.
  4. Make a paste of the green chillies and ginger.
  5. Grate the pumpkin and squeeze out some of the water from it.
  6. Now add to the flour and dal mixture 4 tablespoons of oil, the lemon juice, soda bi-carb, sugar, chilli powder, turmeric powder, grated pumpkin, green chilli paste and salt. Mix well.
  7. Spread this batter in a greased tin or metal thali (flat metal plate with low rim).
  8. Heat 5 tablespoons of oil in a vessel and add the mustard seeds. after 1 minute, add the sesamse seeds, ajwain and asafoetida. When brown in colour, spread this oil all over the batter.
  9. Bake in a hot oven at 450°F for 30 to 35 minutes or till the crust is brown jin colour.
  10. Cut into pieces and serve with hot pickle and buttermilk.

Tips
  1. Note : The secret of this recipe is in having a thin layer of batter as compared to the traditional preparation in a deep vessel.
  2. This allows more uniform and much uniform and much quicker baking.

Have tried it so many times always thinking it will definitely go perfect this time..but always after baking the top layer becomes really hard in comparison to the rest of handvo and the bottom always gets stick to the dish so it never forms the perfect pieces..yeah the taste of middle part is very good..but mine never turned out presentable..
