Main ingredients for yellow moong dal handvo.

Put the soaked yellow moong dal in a mixer. Yellow moong dal offers a neutral and slightly nutty flavor that forms the base of the handvo. When ground into a batter, it creates a smooth and slightly grainy texture that contributes to the unique mouthfeel of handvo.

Add 2 tbsp curd (dahi). Traditional handvo recipes often rely on fermentation to leaven the batter. Curds contain live bacteria cultures that ferment the sugars naturally present in the moong dal.

Pro tips for yellow moong dal handvo. 1. Adding rava to the batter acts as a binding agent. Moong dal itself is relatively smooth and lacks gluten, which is a natural binding agent in wheat flour. The semolina's texture, with its tiny granules, helps hold the lentil batter together, creating a more cohesive and manageable mixture. Instead of rava you can also use Oats flour as a substitute. 2. Just before cooking, add 2 tsp fruit salt. Fruit salt, also known as Eno (a brand name), is used in yellow moong dal handvo for one key reason: it acts as a leavening agent. You can also use baking soda instead of eno to make this recipe. Leavening agents help batters rise and become fluffy.  3. Gently mix the batter after adding fruit salt. Vigorous mixing can deflate the air bubbles created by the fruit salt reaction. Gentle folding incorporates the fruit salt evenly while keeping those air bubbles trapped in the batter. This leads to a lighter and fluffier final product.
