Khandavi is a traditional Gujarati savory snack made with gram flour, sold as ‘besan’ in Indian shops.
1 cup yogurt
¾ cup water
½ cup besan or gram flour
¾ tsp turmeric powder
pinch asafoetida ( heeng)
1 tbsp green chilli-ginger paste
6 curry leaves
1 tbsp mustard seeds
2 green chillies cut in rounds
1 tbsp oil
2 tbsp finely chopped cilantro/coriander
2 tbsp freshly grated coconut
Mix yogurt, water and the besan flour into a smooth batter.
Add the other ingredients.
Stir, and cook over low flame in a heavy bottomed pan.
When the mixture thickens, spread it evenly with a spatula on a greased tray/ aluminium foil. You got to be very quick at this stage.
Add the tempering. Wait for about 2 minutes.
Cut into long 1 inch wide vertical strips and roll.
Arrange on a dish and garnish with chopped cilantro and grated coconut.
Serve with mint chutney!
