Handvo (Handwa)

Personally, I am fond of Gujrati recipes. I love eating Undhyu, dhoklas, and all type of gujrati farsans. Handvo (or Handwa) is a Gujarati dish. It is made up of various dals and bottlegourd. You may classify it as a type of dhokla also. You also get readymade Handwa flour in stores.

In this recipe, I have not used bottlegourd (dudhi) but have used vegetables available in my refrigerator like green-peas, carrot etc. This is a modified version of Handvo which we prepare at home.

1 cup rice
1 cup mix dals (toor dal, moong dal, chana dal, urad dal)
2 tspns rawa (Sooji)
1 cup sour curd
1 cup mix finely chopped / grated vegetables (green-peas, carrot, capsicum, etc.)
½ tspn sugar
1 tspn soda or fruit salt
1 tspn turmeric powder
1 tspn red chilly powder
Salt to taste

For Tempering:
½ cup oil
1 ½ tspn mustard seeds
2-3 tspns sesame seeds
½ tspn asafetida (hinga)

Preparation :
Wash rice and dals together
Grind it into a fine paste
Add rawa and curd to the paste
Leave it aside for 6-7 hours for fermentation
Add rest of the ingredients to the batter

Take oil in a non stick pan and heat it.
Add mustard seeds, asafetida and sesame seeds and let it crackle
Pour the batter into the non-stick pan
Close the lid of pan and allow it to cook for 10-15 minutes
Now change the side and allow it to cook for another few minutes
Cut it into small pieces and serve hot
