Authentic khandvis have thin layers and to achieve the same one must whip the gram flour and curd thoroughly to achieve a smooth consistency.

Trivia Tadka

 Khandvi or Suralichi Vadi as called in Maharashtra, has always been known to be one of the most common street foods in Gujarat. This Gujarati bite-sized savoury made from gram four can be eaten as a snack or an appetizer.


  • Bengal gram flour (besan) (1 cup)
  • Curd (dahi) (1 cup)
  • Asafoetida (hing) (1/4 tsp)
  • Mustard seeds (sarson) (3/4 tsp)
  • Sesame seeds (tal/til) (3/4 tsp)
  • Green chillies and ginger paste (2-3 tsp)
  • MTR Haldi/Turmeric Powder (1/4 tsp)
  • Lemon (nimbu) juice (1/8 tsp)
  • Coconut (nariyal), freshly grated (1/4 cup)
  • Coriander (dhaniya) leaves, freshly chopped (1/4 cup)
  • Oil (2 tbsp)
  • Water (1–2 cups)
  • Salt (to taste)
  • Oil for greasing (3-4 drops)


  • Firstly, grease two wide plates and keep them aside, for placing the rolled out thin sheets on them.
  • In a bowl, mix curd and water, beat well and keep aside.
  • Slowly add flour and continue to beat, lightly. Add asafoetida, MTR Haldi/Turmeric Powder, green chilli and ginger paste, salt, lemon juice and mix it well into a smooth runny dough.
  • This mix has to be cooked on a low flame to a smooth consistency, thin enough to be spread on the greased plate.
  • Scoop the cooked batter with a tablespoon and spread it on the greased plate while it is hot.
  • Follow the technique of spreading the dough equally with the help of a flat spoon (spatula).
  • Give it a few minutes to cool down, lift it from one point and roll it up softly.
  • Cut each roll up according to your choice or it can be cut into 2-inch piece each.
  • Now for tempering, heat (1 tbsp) oil in a kadhai, add mustard seeds, asafoetida (hing), sesame seeds and sauté for 5–6 secs.
  • Pour this tempering on the khandvi pieces evenly.
  • Garnish with freshly grated coconut and fresh coriander leaves.
  • Serve it as is or with a chutney of your choice.
