Total Time (Minutes): 40
  • 1 cup Besan (Gram Flour)
  • 1 cup yogurt/curd
  • 100 gm spinach leaves, roughly chopped
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon hing powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds
  • Salt to taste
  • 5-6 curry leaves

  1. Add all the ingredients into a blender and blend until you get a smooth puree. When you blend, add the water little at a time, so we get a finely pureed spinach mixture.
  2. Transfer the Khandvi batter into a non-stick pan and heat on low to medium heat, stirring constantly to prevent lump formation.
  3. Continue stirring on low heat, till the mixture thickens for 15 minutes.
  4. The mixture will begin to attain a shine. Once you notice the Khandvi batter has a shine to it and has thickened, turn off the heat. Keep the mixture covered, so it remains hot while you proceed to the steps below, as it will not spread when it cools down
  5. Spread the hot mixture on the prepared surface (greased plate or granite top) as thinly as possible, with a flat spatula. When you have finished spreading the batter, allow it to cool a little and settle down about three minutes and not less. Repeat this process and continue to spread the entire mixture, before it cools down
  6. After about 10 minutes have passed , now begin rolling the mixture into a log starting from the top. Once the rolls have been made, cut the rolls into one-inch size logs. Place the cut rolls on a serving platter
  7. Heat oil in a pan for seasoning, add mustard seeds, curry leaves allow them to crackle
  8. Sprinkle the seasoning over the rolls.
