Khandvi (Indian snack)

Khandvi is a Indian snack from the state of Gujrat. It is made of gram flour and yogurt, which is cooked into a paste and then spread out to cool and rolled in cylindrical shapes.
It has a soft texture and a very mild flavor.

You'll need:
1 cup besan (gram flour)
1 cup yogurt, mixed with 1 and 1/2 cups of water
1/4 tsp of turmeric powder
red chilli powder or green chilli paste according to your taste
salt to taste.
2 tbsp oil
1 tsp mustard seeds
5 -6 curry leaves
1/2 tsp finely chopped green chillies
2 tbsp grated fresh coconut
2 tbsp finely chopped coriander leaves.

- Prepare a surface, either the back of a thali/plate or a tray, by spraying little oil.
- Mix together besan, curd-water mixture, turmeric powder, chilli and salt to a smooth batter. Mix it well so that there are no lumps.
- Pour it into a non-stick pan and cook it on medium flame and stir continuously. As it cooks the paste will start to thicken.
- you need to check if the paste is cooked and ready to be rolled - by taking a spoonful of the mixture and spreading on the greased surface. Cool for a minute and then roll. If it rolls easily, then it is done.
If not, then cook a little bit longer and test it again.
- Once cooked, spread the mixture on the greased surface when the mixture is still warm and work quickly to spread it in a thin layer.

- Let it cool for a minute or two and then cut it into one inch  long strips and then roll the strips.
- After you have rolled all your khandvis, arrange in a plate and then add the tempering. For tempering heat 2 tbsp oil. Once the oil is hot, add mustard seeds, curry leaves and green chillies and fry a little.  Pour this temper over rolled khandvis.
- Sprinkle grated coconut and coriander leaves on top. And enjoy with green coriander chutney or just as is.

  2. Mmmmm, this looks wonderful. My husband and I absolutely love Indian food, but I'm always afraid to make it at home since it likely won't be as delicious. But you're tempting me with this recipe! Thanks so much for linking up at Snickerdoodle Sunday- hope you'll come back again this week!
