Have taken a break this weekend from blogging, to spend full time with my family.Then morning i thought what to post for SWC:Gujrat??, then searched internet, and found this, Khandavi...
Actually earlier also, i tried making khandvi , but that time i didn't had the proper recipe(i think), and it didn't came out well, so with a lot of courage i tried again...:) , and this time .....all went well, and actually its really very easy to make . Yummy snack in just a few minutes...
Gram Flour/Besan 1 Cup
Buttermilk 2.5 Cups
Turmeric Powder 1/2 tsp
Lemon juice 2 tbsp(optional)
Salt to Taste
Fresh or Thawed Grated Coconut 1/2 Cup
Finely Chopped Cilantro(coriander) 2 tbsp
Grated Ginger 1 tsp
Green Chillies chopped finely 2
Salt to Taste
Oil 1 tbsp
Mustard Seeds 2 tsp
Sesame seeds 1 tsp.
Asafoetida a pinch
Mix Gramflour,buttermilk, turmeric powder,lemon juice, salt and make a smooth paste.
In a bowl, mix coconut, coriander leaves,ginger, green chillies & salt,keep aside.
Grease 3-4 plates and keep it ready
Now in a heavy non stick pan, add batter.
Cook in a medium heat till the mixture does not taste raw, stirring continuously and evenly to avoid lump formation,(consistency of batter should get thick)
When done (about 7-8 minutes), pour a ladleful in a large plate.
Spread as thin as possible(about 1 mm thick) with the back of a large flat spoon.
Use circular outward movements as for dosas. Let it cool for 5 10 minutes.
When cooled, sprinkle the coconut filling evenly on it.
Then with a knief cut into 1" wide strips.
Carefully roll each strip, repeat for all plates.
Place in a serving dish.
Sprinkle coconut and coriander all over khandvi rolls.
Heat oil in a small pan.
Add musturd, asafoetida, and chillies.
At last at sesame seeds and immediately pour over rolls.
Serve as it is or with garlic chutney.
As mixture cools fast, make khandvi in small quantity at a time.
If you don't want to stir continuously you can cook besan mixture in microwave too.
