What is sev khamani?

Crumbled khaman with pomegranate, fresh coconut, coriander leaves, tempered with mustard seeds and green chilies and finished with lots of sev is sev khamani or amiri khaman. This is basically an extension of khaman dhokla, which is a very popular Gujarati snack prepared using gram flour (besan). It can be served for breakfast or can be packed for kids’ tiffin as it remains moist and appetizing even after few hours.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for sev khamani

Khaman and garnishings are the main ingredients followed by a simple tempering. Pomegranate arils, shredded coconut, and chopped coriander give flavors and colors to Amiri Khaman. Try not to skip any of these. Even if you don’t like either of them, you’ll love it in the dish. I did not have raw mangoes so I had to skip that.

Perfect khaman forms the base for Amiri Khaman. Here is the recipe for it. You might also like our Indian Breakfast Recipe collection. View it here.

8. Prepare the tadka. For that: Heat 1 tbsp oil. Add 1 tsp mustard seeds and let it crackle. Cook for 10-20 seconds. I was short of both garlic and curry leaves today, so I couldn’t add them. Many people don’t eat garlic of some or the other reason. In that case, skip the garlic. Today the Amiri Khaman, without garlic, too tasted great.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
