Khandvi for the occasion of jeenaskitchenrecipes.blogspot.in turning 2

On 21st June 2014, I started my blog with an intention to keep a record of my recipes and of course, sharing recipes so it can be useful for beginners like I was once.

I try'in and put my best in making the dishes inspite of my work schedule, as blogging gives me that satisfaction and immense pleasure to prepare the dishes and doing the presentation...I am always eager in learning tips for that great presentation and learn a lot from other bloggers presentation.

I have made many great blogger friends whom I would Thank for that appreciation's and support they give and also from whom I learnt a lot through their shares and posts. 

I am always trying to learn something new, and planning to post traditional recipes through which I can also get my hands on it. So today, I have selected Khandvi which is a traditional Gujarati snack dish, loved by almost all and its really tasty. Its easy to prepare if few tactics are learnt. Once that is known, then one can gets their hands on it for that perfection needed like my Grandmother who used to prepare the best of Khandvis... I got my hands on it after a few trial and error and now I guess I am confident making it. Lets move on to the recipe now...

Ingredients:
Besan 3/4th cup
Curd 3/4th cup
Water 3/4th cup + 3/4th cup
Salt as per taste
Turmeric powder 1 tsp
Asafoetida 1 pinch
Ginger - Green Chili paste 1 tbsp 

To Temper:
Oil 1 tbsp
Mustard Seeds 1 tsp
Asafoetida 1 pinch
Curry Leaves few

To Garnish:
Freshly chopped Coriander Leaves
Freshly Grated Coconut 

Method:
First of all, grease two or three behind of plates with oil and keep ready aside.

In a bowl, take besan, curd, water, salt, turmeric powder, asafoetida and ginger - green chili paste and whisk well taking care no lumps are formed.

Now let's start making khandvi...


Heat a pan, and add the besan batter and start to stir well, keeping the flame to slow. Keep on stirring continuously taking care again no lumps are formed and also being careful that the batter doesn't sticks to the bottom of the pan.

The batter will start to thicken, keep on stirring. Do not stop. 

After around 8 - 10 minutes, lets do plate test to find whether the batter is done. For this, take a little batter and spread on the greased plate. Allow to cool for a minute, and start trying to roll. If the batter doesn't roll and feels sticky we will have to cook the batter for few for minutes. 
{Note - My batter was done in around 15 minutes. I tested 3 times and finally reached the needed consistency}. 


Once the batter is done, we need to hurry up and start to spreading the batter on the greased plates as soon as we can, else the batter will thicken and we cannot do anything with it - nor spread nor roll. Spread the batter evenly using a flat spatula to form an even thin layer. Do for all 3 plates and allow it to cool. 

Once cooled, cut them lengthwise. 




Now start to roll each strip gently. Keep placing them in a plate neatly.

Now its time to temper the Khandvis...




In a tempering pan, heat oil. Once heated, add mustard seeds. As mustard seeds crackles, add asafoetida, curry leaves and saute for a few seconds and pour them over the rolled khandvis. 


Garnish with fresh coriander leaves and grated coconut.



Transfer the khandvis to a serving plate and Enjoy... 

  






Note: I guess the lighting in my Kitchen was not so good and as I made this dish in the evening time, the photos and colours have some differences in few pictures. I have not altered any picture, kept it as natural as taken.
