Khandvi is Gujarati delicacy made using Gram Flour/Chickpea Powder and flavoured with tempering of pungent mustard, spicy green chillies, sweet coconut grates and aromatic coriander leaves.One of the favorite snack in my family. I learnt to make Khandvi, also called surali chya vadya in Marathi, from my neighbour, a popular Gujarati snack which is quick, easy, and also low-fat. The best part was to cut them into thin stripes and roll them without much fuss!! Whenever I make Khandvi..Yes, I did it and I feel like I am on top of the world . Here I proudly present fluffy, soft, melt in mouth and delicious Khandvi.
Gram Flour(besan)-11/4 cups
Ginger-1 one inch piece
Green Chillies_2

1. Sieve the besan and keep in a bowl.Grind ginger and greenchillies, grease the reverse side of a few thalis .
2. Make buttermilk with yogurt and water.
3. Mix the besan with ginger, greenchillies, salt turmeric powder, lemonjuice and buttermilk.Take care that ther are no lumps.

4. Cookthis mixture over fire till thickens into a thick batter.stir constantly.

5. Quickly spread the mixture over the greased inverted thalis top as thinly as possiblewhile the batter is still hot.( you should do it quickly before batter gets cold and lumpy.If you have somebody to help you,that would be great.I cook alone,so such luck for me.because of one phone call I had to discard the last two spoonfuls.)
6. When cool roll the layer towards you and cut into 1” pieces.
