Khandvi: Gujrati Snack

Follow me on Twitter. Add me as a friend on Facebook . Visit my Flickr photostream.

I have a good news to share with all of you. Palki, the only online Bengali magazine has recently published their 8th edition. Some of the photographs clicked by me and Kalyan, and also a recipe (Titor dal) have been published in this edition.

I had been utterly busy with my assignments and classes. The exams are knocking at the door and loads and loads of syllabus to cover. But, the majority of the day am playing Farmville in FaceBook and may be a little of going through the texts. I have almost forgotten the route to our kitchen. This Khandvi recipe was in drafts for quite a long time now.

Khandvi is one of the typical Gujrati dishes that I just adore. It is a wholesome meal so as to say, with chickpea flour and sour curd and very little oil, Khandvi is just the best idea for those who are on diet and also for those of us who just love food.

Makes: 20 pieces
Cooking Time: 15 -20 minutes + 15 minutes for making into rolls

  • When you have finished spreading the batter, allow it to cool a little and settle down.
  • Cut the spread into 2 inch thick long strips, and try rolling these strips length wise

Hot tips – You can also spread the chickpea flour mixture over a clean black stone table of your kitchen. Be patient while rolling the khandvis, because they tend to break.

  1. really great stuff like what you did with the new 2013 theme looking fresh

  2. Hi Everyone

    One tip…to roll thin khandvis, pour the cooked mixture on a thick oiled sheet of polythin bag and cover it with another similar sheet (preferably transparent) and roll with the rolling pin with light hands. This will help roll it into thin sheets and also, it will not stick & crack:)

    • Alka,
      Thanks for dropping by. To tell you the truth even I had a hard time rolling those up, in between they were kind of breaking. Then I found out that wherever the strips were a bit thick, the roll cracks at those spots.
