Stuffed Khandvi

Khandvi is a famous Gujarati snacks. Khandvi is prepared using besan (gram flour) and curd and tempered with curry leaves, mustard and sesame seeds. Making it first few times until you get hang of it, requires lot of patience. The very important step is getting the mixture consistency right and time taken to spread. It took me three iterations to get the right consistency of mixture and to make it perfect. Khandvi is garnished with fresh grated coconut and coriander leaves. I also have tried a little variation by stuffing the khandvi with shredded coconut, coriander leaves and beetroot. You can either skip the stuffing or make it as per your choice.
