Khandvi

Khandvi2

Ahem Ahem Ahem!!(Cough) has been my language for the past three days. Its so depressing and makes me feel so dull. Above all taking antibiotics makes me feel so drowsy that I wake up so late in the morning.

Waking up late tends to upset the entire day's plan, atleast largely messes up my eating schedules. I have my breakfast late, so become a fussy eater for lunch, which inturn makes me damn hungry in the evening and so on.. ufff too much to handle!!

So today was one such day when I was really hungry in the evening and wanted something spicy cum tangy to treat my tongue which was almost numb with medicines.

Khandvi has been in my to do list for long and today was the day for it. I had all the energy and josh to do it since it was pretty simple with very few ingredients.

Lata aunty's recipe was quite handy and followed it absolutely except for skipping the sesame tempering.

Khandvi1

Ingredients:

Gram flour(Besan/Kadalai maavu) - 1/3 cup
Curd - 1/3 cup
Water - 1 cup
Ginger - 1/2 inch piece
Green chilly - 1
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Asafoetida(Hing) - 1/4 tsp
Sugar - 1/2 tsp
Salt - for taste
Oil - 3 tblsp

For tempering:

Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Grated coconut - 1 tblsp
Coriander leaves

Khandvi

Method:

Sieve the gram flour, salt, asafoetida and turmeric powder together in a bowl.

Grind the ginger and chilly into a smooth paste.

Mix in the above flour mixture, beaten curd, ginger-chilly paste, water and sugar together into a smooth and thin batter. See to it that it does not form any lumps.

Mean while keep your work surface ready by turning over a large plate and grease it well with oil.

Heat oil in a pan and add the prepared batter to it. Keep the flame low and stir continuously until the batter is well cooked. The batter would become slightly thick and glossy once it is cooked and would not stick to the walls of the pan. The batter should still be in pouring consistency and not a mass. Switch off the stove when it reaches that consistency.

Pour the contents immediately on the greased plate and spread the batter evenly into a thin sheet using a laddle. This has to be done quickly since the batter would thicken when it cools down. Once you have spread it, make even sized stripes using a knife. Allow it to cool for five minutes. Now roll each stripe into spirals and place them on the serving plate.

Crackle mustard seeds in oil and pour them on top of the rolls and garnish with scrapped coconut and finely chopped coriander leaves.

Tangy Khandvi is ready to eat.

This quantity would make 12 spirals.

Happy making :) Enjoy eating :)

Tips:

Sieving the flour will surely help from the batter forming lumps.

You can avoid adding sugar if you don't like your khandvi being a little sweet.

See to that the batter is in pouring consistency after it is cooked. Over cooking it will result in a mass that will not spread easily.

Allow it to cool for few mins after the lines are drawn, else it would be hard to roll them.

Dont let it cool for long as well. The rolls would tend to break if done so.

You can also add sesame seeds while tempering.
