1 cup besan
1 cup sour yogurt
2 cups water
1 teaspoon green chilli paste
1/4 teaspoon asafoetida
1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
Salt to taste

Ingredients for seasoning

1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds
1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
1 teaspoon sesame seeds
5-6 curry leaves
2-3 dry red chillies
2 tablespoons grated coconut
2 tablespoons chopped coriander
2 tablespoons oil


Whisk the yogurt, water and gram flour.
Add green chiili and ginger paste, asafoetida, turmeric powder and salt. Whisk until well blended.
Transfer the mixture into a non stick pan and heat on low- medium heat, stirring constantly to prevent lump formation. Continue stirring on low heat, till the mixture thickens. After about 15 minutes of stirring, taste to see if you feel the gram flour mixture is still uncooked. If you are unable to determine, then stir continuously for another 5 minutes.
Keep the mixture covered, so it remains hot while you proceed to the steps below.
Spread the hot mixture on a flat surface as thinly as possible, with a flat spatula. When you have finished spreading the batter, allow it to cool a little and settle down.
After about 10 minutes you will notice that you can roll the spread into a roll. Repeat this process and continue to spread the entire mixture. Again wait for about 10 minutes before you can make a roll. Once the rolls have been made, you can cut them to a desired size or 1 inc size pieces.
Place the cut rolls on a serving dish. Heat oil in a pan for seasoning; add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, sesame seeds, allow them to crackle. The add the curry leaves and red chillies. Sprinkle the seasoning over the khandvi`s (gram flour rolls) and garnish with coriander leaves and coconut.
