Gujarati Khandvi - Microwave Method



Ingredients
Batter
1 cup Chickpea / gram flour
1 cup yogurt
2 cups water
3 garlic cloves; minced
1 inch piece of ginger; grated
2 green chilies; minced
½ teaspoon turmeric
1/8 teaspoon asafetida / hing
Salt to taste

For Vaghar / Tempering
1 tablespoon oil
1 teaspoon Mustard Seeds
1 teaspoon cumin
2 teaspoons sesame seeds
6 curry leaves

For garnish
1 tablespoon desiccated coconut
2 tablespoons coriander; finely chopped

Method
1.    Place all the batter ingredients in a microwave bowl, mix well to make a smooth fairly thin batter. Beat well; I used a hand blender to make sure there were no lumps.
2.    Cook uncovered in microwave for 3 minutes, mix well and cook for another two 3 minutes mixing well between cooking. I cooked the batter for a total of 9 minutes. (Microwave times differ according to different makes).  The batter should be quite thick now
3.    Test if it is done by place a drop on a flat surface, if it sets, it is ready.
4.    Spread the batter as fast as possible with a palate knife on ungreased foil sheet.   Make sure is spread quite thinly.
5.    When cool and set, (a couple of minutes), cut the sheet of khandvi into 2 inches thick pieces.  Roll each piece into khandvis (like Swiss roll), and place on a flat serving dish.

Vaghar/tempering
6.    Heat the oil in a frying pan, and add the sesame, mustard and cumin seeds with the curry leaves cook for a 2-3 minutes and pour over the khandvi.
7.    Garnish with the desiccated coconut and the chopped coriander.
