This Gujarati delicacy can now be made in just five minutes in the microwave! These freshly-tempered and steaming-hot khandvis are a must try!

In fact, it is even easier to make because you do not have to constantly stir the curds and besan mixture like you would have to on a gas-top. Just ensure that there are no lumps in the batter or else the khandvis will not be uniform in size and the texture will also go for a toss.

you must know, that di-cotiledon seeds such as gram itself, are not to be used/eaten with curd in jain cooking. seeld also like those of fruits(melon seeds) vegetables(peas) and ???? (gram/pulses) are not eaten with curd/blended curd(chaas).

Tarla Dalal    Hi Ayush, We completely respect your thoughts. But there are a lot of people who have this combination including jains as there is no substitute to it. Like if you consider this recipe of khandvi, to get the perfect khandvi, the mixture is always made up of curd/buttermilk with the besan. This combination gives you the best results.

This microwave khandvi came out perfectly. Love the taste of besan and curds which form a nice roll.
