KHANDVI



Khandvi is a very popular Gujrati snack.It is a very healthy one too as there is no frying involved. Besan, blended with yogurt and tempering is cooked to perfection and then spread out on a smooth surface. It is then cut into strips and rolled. Fresh tadka is added just before serving.
Ingredients:
Besan (Gram Flour)……1 cup
Buttermilk………………….2 cups (Whip SOUR yogurt with water and make it into thin consistency)
Ginger………………….1” piece
Green Chillies…………. 3-4
Salt to taste
Turmeric Powder……….1/4 tsp
Mustard Seeds………….1-2 tsps,
Asafoetida ..... a pinch
Coriander Leaves………for garnishing
Coconut (grated)………..for garnishing

Method:
1. Grind ginger & green chillies to a fine paste.

2. Whisk besan with buttermilk, salt, turmeric powder, ginger-green chillies paste. There should be no lumps.

3. Transfer onto a thick bottomed pan, cook on medium flame (without adding oil) stirring continuously till it thickens. Remove from fire and the next step has to be done very quickly before the mixture hardens beyond spreading.

4. Pour the mixture on a clean, flat kitchen top surface or the back of a thali. Now, quickly using the lower end of a flat-bottomed bowl, spread into very thin large circle. (This should be done immediately after removing the pan from fire or else the mixture will harden.)
5. The spread mixture sets immediately in about 2 minutes.
6. Now roll the whole layer like a swiss roll and cut into 1” pieces carefully. Alternately, you may cut 1" width strips and roll each separately. (whichever method you find easy)
7. Add tempering of mustard seeds and asafoetida.
8. Garnish with coriander leaves and grated coconut.
For variation you can mix mint chutney, grated coconut and coriander leaves and spread this mixture on the khandvi before rolling.
