Khandvi is a popular Gujarati snack made by cooking gram flour and curd mixture. The cooked mixture is spread and rolled and thereafter tempered with mustard seeds and curry leaves. Khandvi simply melts in the mouth leaving behind great flavors of gram flour, mustard seeds, and curry leaves, etc. Generally, khandvi is cooked in a kadai. It calls for continuous stirring and at times it is tricky to determine when to stop? This is the recipe for microwave khandvi. It is absolutely fuss-free and close to foolproof. This recipe can be tried by the first timers to make khandvi.
In this recipe following kitchen gadgets are required other than the “edible ingredients”
Obviously a microwave and a hand blender! Now coming to the ingredients:
Gram flour: Regular besan is used to make microwave khandvi.
Yogurt + water: Correct proportion of the key ingredients is the key to perfect khandvi.
Tempering: I have done very basic tempering of mustard seeds and curry leaves. You can also add in sesame seeds (til).
As such microwave khandvi needs no accompaniments; a cup of tea is great for anything and everything.
