Khandvi Recipe | How to make Khandvi

This post is also available in: Hindi

Also known as Patuli, Dahivadi or Suralichi Vadi, Khandvi is a popular snack in both Maharashtra and Gujarat. It is made with a base of gram flour (besan) and yogurt. It is smooth, absolutely melts in the mouth and you really can’t stop at one.

Khandvi is available at most halwais in metro cities where is is best if you have it fresh. But why buy from there when this dish can be made so easily at home. If you follow the instructions correctly, you’ll get great tasting Khandvi the first time itself whose layers are thin and soft.

The main thing to remember while making Khandvi is to get your timing and consistency right. The gram flour and yogurt mix should be of the right consistency before and after you finish cooking. After this, you’ll have to be really quick to take a couple of spoonfuls and spread on a greased plate. If you do this a bit late then the batter will thicken and will not roll out properly.
