Recipe For Khandvi


  • Gram Flour (Besan) - 1 cup
  • Yogurt - 1 cup
  • Water - 1 cup
  • Turmeric Powder - 1/8 tsp
  • Asafoetida - pinch
  • Ginger paste - blueberry size
  • Green Chilly paste - 1/4 tsp (optional)

  1. Mix together the gram flour, ginger paste, green chilly paste, turmeric powder, asafoetida and required salt.
  2. Add the yogurt and water gradually while stirring continuously to make a smooth paste.

  4. After the besan mixture is completely cooked and it becomes like a smooth paste, switch off the flame.
  5. Using a spatula take some of the mixture and spread it onto a smooth unreleased surface immediately. (It can be the back of a stainless steel plate, baking tray, cookie sheet or just an aluminium foil.)
  6. Let it cool for about 5 minutes.
  7. In the meantime heat a pan and make a seasoning of mustard seeds,sesame seeds, curry leaves and dry red chilly.
  8. Sprinkle half of the seasoning over the mixture.
  9. Cut into thin strips and roll up each strip into firm roll.
  10. Arrange the rolls in a serving dish, garnish with the remaining seasoning, finely chopped cilantro and grated coconut.

        Hi Dahlia,
Firstly, you have such an amazingly organized website! Kudos to you!
I tried the khandvi recipe today and I must say that the taste was perfect! I made a small error, i.e., I did not spread it thin enough, but I have learned :). Thanks for your painstaking efforts to give us your recipes.
