Though it is very easy to make at home, but many people choose to buy from shops.Khandvi is made from buttermilk and gram flour.
As i have told,khandvi is made with a mixture of gram flour and buttermilk.Buttermilk is nothing but a thin solution of yogurt and water.
Cooking Khandvi smooth batter is one tricky part. if you get this right, then more than half of your problem is solved.what we look for in a khandvi are thin layers and this is achieved by getting the right consistency when cooking the batter. if you even cook it more and the consistency thickens, then spreading the khandvi mixture becomes difficult and what you get are thick layers. another important point is that you have to be quick in spreading the cooked khandvi batter. if you delay then the batter thickens as it cools and becomes lumpy while spreading.
I haven't read any recipe for khandvi as i have learn this recipe from my mom. She used to give lot of tips and tricks which are the secret of my khandvis.The proportions of this recipe is enough for a family of four to five. the recipe yields 25 to 30 khandvi rolls. also it depends on how thinly or thickly you spread the batter.
to make khandvi, the proportion of gram flour/besan to buttermilk is 1 : 3. the buttermilk should be neither thin nor thick, but of medium consistency. i have mixed Homemade yogurt with water for the buttermilk. I didn't add any extra spiciness in batter.
khandvi is a gluten free healthy snack if you don’t add asafoetida powder or use wheat free asafoetida. the recipe can also be veganized using vegan yogurt. to get the sourness, just add a bit of lemon juice in the batter.(But i din't tried this way yet)
