Snack-time With Savory Khandvi

(Click image for enlarged view )

One of my favorite cusine is the gujarati cuisine, who are predominant in western India. Khandvi is a gujarati delicacy made using chickpea flour and flavoured with tempering of mustard, sesame seeds, spicy green chillies, a perfect snack which can be prepared quickly.

It has a lovely yellow color and simple melts in your mouth with a savory taste. The preparation is easy but needs a little patience. So here is the recipe

Ingredients
  • 1 cup besan (chickpea flour)
  • 1 cup yogurt ( plain curd )
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/4 tsp green chilli paste
  • 1/4 tsp ginger paste
  • pinch of hing (asafetida)
  • salt to taste
For tempering
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 tbsp cilantro (coriander)
  • pinch of hing (asafetida)
Cooking Procedure

Sieve the chickpea flour to remove the lumps. And then to it add all the above ingredients to make a smooth paste.

Take a non stick pan and put this batter in it and switch on the flame.Stir continuously till it becomes soft thick paste.

To test the consistency apply a tsp of paste on the backside of a small plate and once it cools if it is able to peel off easily for rolling , switch off the flame immediately.

Take a clean surface and apply this paste lengthwise with spatula approx 1 mm thick. Once it cools cut vertically and start rolling.

Keep the rolls on a serving plate and prepare the tempering.

Heat oil in a tempering pan, add mustard seeds once it splutter add sesame seeds, hing and stir once sesame start spluttering switch off the flame and spread this mixture on the khandvi.

Garnish with coriander and serve.
