Khaman is a very popular Gujarati snack (to be precise it comes from Surat), made by steaming gram flour batter and thereafter tempering the same with mustard seeds, chilies, etc. When the prepared khaman is dipped and soaked in a sweet cum tangy cum spicy cum flavored rasa (thin gravy, sort of), the essence of khaman increases manifolds and it becomes rasawala khaman. It is not only an innovative way to serve the khaman but can also be used to revamp the leftover khaman or dry khaman.
Khaman: You can prepare the khaman using the recipe given here. After preparing it, I realized that I should have prepared khaman with less height, as that would have absorbed the rasa so much better.
Rasa (thin sauce): I have used mustard seeds and green chilies for the tempering. Jaggery and tamarind pulp add the contrasting flavors, red chili powder adds the required heat and then goes in lots of water. Although the quantity might vary depending upon how moist your khaman is a lot is added.
That’s it!! Yayy!
With some khaman in hand, you can make amiri khaman. This is one of my favorites. Especially if I ever mess up my khaman I convert it into this. Khaman chaat is also an amazing way to present simple khaman.
