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 .

Can this be baked in the oven in one go instead of cooking on pan 3 times? If yes, then please provide specific instructions on time, temperature. Thanks

Tarla Dalal    Hi Shefali, We have not tried baking it in an oven. But, you can try cooking 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.

It''s only idli batter? And no besan to be added?

Tarla Dalal    Hi Deepa, as the recipe says no besan, it is a variation of the handvo.
