Khandvi

Beep beep... Beep beep, oh its already morning that was the first thing came to my mind... Lazily dragging myself out of the bed, and oh yeah its already Wednesday, going thru the daily routines I slowly walked to the bay door enjoying the cold breeze with a mug of hot steaming milk gazed at my plants and did my usual talking to them ;), its not weird as we (Myself, My brother, Mom and my aunts) do it right from childhood... Time to send K off keys, wallet, ID, Money and helmet check check and check, so what next simple uhhh venture into the kitchen and start doing something comforting mmm, my mind wandering slowly settled on Khandvi...

My mom found this in the microwave cooking book that came along with her microwave, she made this for us I have always helped doing it but have never tried in on my own... It was always on my mind to try and see how it works, so I thought why not today for sure I was all set to face the intricacies of making it, although there is none ;)... Simple and an appetizing one, you can make this in a jiffy and this recipe is a keep indeed...



Ingredients:

Gram Flour - 1/2 cup (Besan Flour)
Fresh Yogurt - 3/4 cup
Water - 3/4 cup
Ginger paste - 1 tbsp
Green Chilli - 1 no. pasted
Turmeric Powder - a dash
Asafoetida - a dash (hing)
Salt to taste

Filling:

Coconut - 3-4 tbsps grated
Coriander - few stalks finely chopped

Seasoning:

Oil - 1/4 tsp
Mustard Seeds - 1/2 tsp
Asafoetida - a dash (hing)

Garnishing:

Coriander Leaves
Green Chillies finely chopped
Coconut grated



Method:

In a microwave safe bowl sift the gram flour and set aside. Mix Water and Yogurt with Ginger and Green Chilli Paste and pour it lil by lil to the flour whisking all the time not letting any lumps to form. Adjust Salt and add Asafoetida and mix well. Microwave the mixture for 4 minutes removing in between to whisk it well so they dont beome hard at the edges.

Now after 4 min's whisk the mixture well until there are no lumps in the mixture and place it again for another 2 minutes, whisking as you did before. Now you will porcelain plates or silver plates or any glass plate without any decoration on it. I used a porcelain plate, scooped the mixture using a large spoon or spatula and lay it on the plate and roll it or apply it thinly over the plate and let it cool for a while.

Sprinkle Coconut and Coriander leaves on the plate, roll a pizza cutter thru the entire length at about 1 or 1.5 inches apart... Using your fingers roll the dough slowly tucking in the stuffing. In a pan heat Oil and add the Mustard Seeds and Hing and pour it over the rolled dough. Sprinkle some Coconut, Coriander and Chillies over the Khandvi and serve.

Caution: Spread the dough immediately on plates or flat surface, it will harden as they cool and spreading them becomes difficult...

I have never tasted this but it sounds delicious, lovely color too:)
talking to plants is normal :)(When I was in th std. a teacher said that therewas a drumstick tree in her house and it didn't give her enough drumsticks and so she used to shout at the tree complaining that it was a waste etc. and from that day onwards, it gave her so many drumsticks.... how far it is true God only know, hehehe)
but this is to tell you that you're absolutely not weird...

Ekta said...

Hi Ramya! I have never eaten this before but you make it sound so easy and look so delicious - so I have to try it out. :)

Pooja said...

Thanks Ramya for your lovely words. Reg your doubt abt Phyllo-Phyllo dough is paper thin sheets of raw dough made with flour, water and small amounts of oil. It can be obtained from the frozen section of stores. Its different from Puff pastry which is made with flour, lots of butter and other ingredients. Its said that making phyllo dough is a long process and hence its best to buy from stores(frozen section).
