Khandavi makes for a great appetizer!


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!
