Mixed Vegetable Handvo is a delicious snack made with readymade idli batter reinforced with loads of tasty, juicy, crunchy veggies!

A tempering of mustard and sesame seeds adds to the flavour and aroma of this tasty treat. We have cooked the handvo in a tava and cut it into handy-sized pieces for easy serving.

This yummy snack is neither too complex nor does it require deep-frying, yet it is irresistibly tasty and sure to be loved by all!

It is easy to make, and can be made without any advance planning as it requires no soaking or fermentation. Serve it with green chutney for a satiating tea-time snack!

You can also add more fun to your tea-time with other non-fried snacks like Batata Vada and Patra .
