It will surely be worth the effort and you will realize that in every bite you will take.
The ingredients used for this dish are basic ingredients available in every kitchen. Making this will need patience but end result would be amazing.
Making a Khandvi recipe needs lots of patience. This is one of my favorites. I always had it in restaurant before. I was encouraged of making it when I couldn’t find it in a place I am staying nowadays. Craving for Khandvi was so strong that I end up making it at home. Sometimes it doesn’t come out right in the first attempt. Fortunately it came out fine when I tried for the first time. Then there was no looking back and I started making it often. It is a nutritious snack which is steamed and is full of protein and low in fats. If you are on diet, or if you like easily digestible food or you want to try a delicious snack from India, give it a try.
Do make a note of few tips before you start with the recipe, don’t overcook the batter or under-cook otherwise rolls will not come out fine. And do check if the consistency of the batter is right or not by spreading the small amount of batter on a plate and check it out if the rolls are coming out fine. If the consistency is fine and rolls are coming out fine, go ahead and spread all the batter, otherwise keep cooking on medium flame.
You can serve it with the different Indian chutneys which are full of Indian aromatic spices and taste. You can serve it with yummy tamarind chutney or spicy mint chutney.
