Khandvi (Gujarati dish)

Khandvi is popular snack recipe from Gujarat (a state of India). It is made from besan or gram flour and sour yogurt. And the tempering is added on top at end which takes the dish to another level.

There are two things make this khandvi so tasty. One is the sour yogurt. If your yogurt is not sour then add more lemon juice. And second is the tadka, without tadka khandvi tastes bland.

If making it for first time, you might get fail. But I have mentioned possible tips and tricks in the instructions. Remember practice makes man perfect. Always start with smaller batch. By saying that I do not want to scare you, be brave, read recipe thoroughly and try it. I am sure you will get success.
