A mouth watering traditional Gujarati snack food that is typically seasoned with sautéed sesame seeds and few other spices. It’s not only easy to make but healthy as well because it just involves steaming gram flour and butter milk and does not require any other complex cooking techniques.

  • 1 cup Besan/Chickpea (Gram) Flour 
  • 2 cups Buttermilk (1 cup yogurt + 1 cup water)
  • 1/8 tsp Turmeric Powder 
  • Pinch of Asafoetida 
  • Salt - to taste

For Seasoning:
  • 4 tsp Oil 
  • 1 tsp Mustard Seeds 
  • Pinch of Asafoetida 
  • 2 Green Chillies (cut length wise)
  • 1 Tbsp Grated Coconut 
  • Cilantro (Coriander) - chopped for garnishing
  • In a large microwave safe bowl, mix Besan (Gram Flour), Yogurt, Turmeric Powder, Salt and Asofoetida.
  • Add Water and blend the mixture to a smooth (lump-free) paste.
  • Cook uncovered in the microwave for 1 1/2 minutes.
  • Remove from microwave and stir to break up any lumps.
  • Microwave again for 1 1/2 minutes and stir again.
  • Microwave for last 1 1/2 minutes and mix well. You may have to use a hand blender to remove any lumps.
  • Lay out Aluminum Foil in long sheets (approx 2 ft) on the counter top. (Tip - this step should be done while batter is cooking. Once the batter is out of the microwave, you have to work fast before it solidifies.)
  • Spoon batter along one edge of the foil and with a flat spatula, gently pull the batter down along the foil (spreading it thin). Once the foil is completely covered, start on the next piece of foil. Repeat until all batter is thinly spread.
  • Let the batter rest for 5 minutes and allow it to solidify.
  • With a sharp knife, cut long 1 to 1 1/2 inch strips in the solid batter.
  • Gently lift the edge and roll the strip into a tight roll. You can make the rolls as big as you like. If they get too thick, cut it off and start a new roll.
  • Repeat rolling and placing rolls on a platter.
  • Sprinkle Coconut and Cilantro (Coriander) over the Khandvi.
  • Heat Oil in a small skillet.
  • Add Mustard Seeds, allow them to pop.
  • Add Asofoetida, Green Chilies and switch off heat.
  • Sprinkle seasoning over the Khandvi.
  • Serve at room temperature.
