A delicacy from the heartland of Gujarat, Handvo is a unique dish baked in a Kadhai over a traditional tempering and sautéed veggies. Here, we have used a batter of green moong dal which gives a homely flavour and enticing mouth-feel. Ingredients like spinach, onions, coriander and others add to the flavour, while a tempering of sesame really uplifts the aroma. Take care while turning over the handvo, as it must be done slowly without breaking it. Together with peppy green chutney, the Green Moong Dal and Palak Handvo makes an amazing Evening Tea Snacks It can also be served along with a full meal, as a starter.

I made this. But it turned soggy from inside. I followed all the instructions. Is there anything I did wrong?

Tarla Dalal    Hi Dimple, Try and cook the handvo on a little lower flame for a little longer.
