Preparation Time:    Cooking Time:    Total Time:     Makes 4 servings
Show me for servings

1 cup besan (bengal gram flour)
1 cup fresh curd (dahi)
2 to 3 drops of lemon juice
2 tsp ginger-green chilli paste
1/4 tsp turmeric powder (haldi)
a pinch of asafoetida (hing)
salt to taste
oil for greasing
3 tsp oil
1 tsp mustard seeds ( rai / sarson)
1/4 tsp asafoetida (hing)
5 to 6 curry leaves (kadi patta)
1/2 tsp finely chopped green chillies

For The Garnish
2 tbsp freshly grated coconut
2 tbsp finely chopped coriander (dhania)
  1. Grease 3 thalis (10” diameter each) very lightly with oil on both the sides and keep aside.
  2. Combine the curds and 1½ cups of water in a deep bowl, mix well and keep aside.
  3. Combine the besan, curds-water mixture, lemon juice, ginger-green chilli paste, turmeric powder, asafoetida and salt in a deep non-stick pan and mix well to make a smooth batter, taking care that no lumps remain.
  4. Cook on a slow flame, while stirring continuously till it becomes thick (approx. 8 to 10 minutes).
  5. Spread a spoonful of the batter on a greased thali and wait for a few seconds and try to roll up. If it doesn’t, then cook for a few more minutes, and check once more till done.
  6. While it is still hot, pour little portions of the mixture on the insides of 3 greased thalis and quickly spread the mixture in a circular motion into a thin layer using a vati.
  7. Turn all the 3 thalis and spread the remaining mixture on their back sides as in step 6.
  8. When cool roll them up tightly.
  9. Cut each khandvi roll into 6 equal pieces and keep them on a serving plate.
  10. For the tempering, heat the oil in a small non-stick pan and add the mustard seeds.
  11. When the seeds crackle, add the asafoetida, curry leaves and green chillies and sauté on a medium flame for a few seconds.
  12. Pour the tempering over the khandvis.
  13. Serve immediately garnished with coconut and coriander.

As yummy as they are to eat, Khandvis are rather difficult to make. I discovered this yesterday, while attempting to pull it off, with the help of this recipe alone! The Khandvis turned out to be pretty delicate and soft and the tempering added that extra zing to it! The last two tips are truly vital!
