Mixed dal handvo is a traditional gujarati savoury cake, which is a nutritious meal in its own right when served with chutney and buttermilk. Although readymade flour is available in the market, we suggest you try this version to experience the true flavour. The grated bottle gourd is a very critical ingredient in this recipe as it imparts the required softness to the handvo – such that it is crisp outside but soft inside. Go ahead and follow these instructions meticulously—you are sure to end up with perfect handvo!

Mini handvo:

  1. For making mini handvos, divide the same mixture into 4 equal portions and pour each portion into a small non-stick kadhai or a pan and spread it evenly to make a thin layer. Cover and cook on a slow flame till both sides turn golden brown in colour and crisp. This allows more uniform and much quick

For baked handvo:

  1. You can also cook the handvo in an oven. Simply pour the batter into a greased baking tray and bake in a pre-heated oven at 200ºc (400ºf) for 30 to 35 minutes or till the crust is golden brown in colour.
