The Maharashtrian Ghavan is a unique pancake made of a quick and easy rice flour batter. It takes just a few minutes to mix the ingredients into a batter and there is no need to ferment either.

The secret to getting the perfectly-textured Ghavan lies in the consistency of the batter, which must not be very thin or thick.

If you get the batter of a proper dropping consistency, you will get nice and spongy Ghavans. Serve it hot, because rice flour tends to get chewy over time.

Relish it with any Maharashtrian subzi for a hearty meal. Try other subzis like Mixed Vegetable Subzi and Palak Matar Paneer Subzi.
