Khandvi recipe, How to make khandvi

Label :
Khandvi recipe - An easy and guilt free Indian snack perfect for parties as starter! With full video and step by step pictures.
This is the first time I am tasting a khandvi that too tried first time by me. This ingredients are so similar to that of khaman dhokla, only the method is different. Quite tricky but sure not difficult to try. But I always had a fear to try this though I wanted to try it earlier. I had a recipe written in my cookbook handwritten and passed to me by my mom. But I was so afraid as I was thinking it would be difficult. Then how did I overcame this? 😇.
Check out the full video

My friend Sangeeta sent me step by step pictures of the khandvi her aunt made and inspired me and gave the confidence to try. Thank you for taking time to send those pictures Sangeeta. Now I can make this often and make it when ever somebody visits for snack time. Yes, its perfect for party as starter. Just make a green chutney and make this and everyone can pick and have chit chat along with this delicious yet guilt free authentic snack!


Khandvi recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Snack
Prep Time: 20 mins    |  Cook time: 10 mins    Serves: 4


Besan/ Chickpea flour/ gram flour/ Kadala mavu - 1/2 cup

Curd - 1/2 cup

Water - 3/4 cup

Asafoetida - 2 generous pinches

Salt - As needed

Turmeric (optional) - 1 pinch

Coconut, grated - 3 tbsp

Coriander leaves, chopped - 3 tbsp

To temper

oil - 2 tsp

Mustard - 3/4 tsp

Asafoetida - 2 pinches


  1. Take besan, curd, water, salt and asafoetida (turmeric also if adding) in a heavy bottomed pan. Using a whisk, beat it smoothly.Heat this in medium flame with constant stirring. Make sure you stir well until bottom as the bottom of the batter gets thickened faster. Stir until the mixture thickens and gets cooked. It must not be too thick, just like a paste that will be easy to spread. Do not let it over cooked, otherwise you may not be able to spread.
  2. 1-khandvi-recipe
  3. Keep ready – clean counter top or a cutting board smooth and plain as I have used as shown in the picture. You also need a spatula to spread the mixture. If you are not comfortable using counter top as such, u can use aluminium foil over the counter top.
  4. 2-khandvi-recipe
  5. Act quickly, transfer the batter to the counter top.If you have more batter, do it in two or three places. I used very less, so needed only one plastic cutting board. So I spread the batter thinly using the spatula. Let it cool down completely.
  6. 3-khandvi-recipe
  7. Draw lines with a knife into strips. Trim the edges. I divided the stips into two and gently rolled into khandvis. I will soon upload  uploaded the video below.
  8. 4-khandvi-recipe
  9. Lastly arrange it in a tray and temper with the mustard, asafoetida and spread it over the khandvis. Garnish with coriander and grated fresh coconut.
  10. 5-khandvi-recipe


    • If the mixture gets over cooked and too thick, then you will not be able to spread properly.
    • If the mixture gets cooled down, the spread will become thick and so do the khadvis too. SO act quickly.
    • Instead of spreading as rectangles, you can do like a dosa/ crepes and cut that too. Use a ladle to spoon the batter also a spatula to level the thick parts.
    • If your batter is not cooked properly, then you cannot roll the strips and it will be sticky.
    • Do not apply pressure while rolling, do it gently. otherwise it will break and wont look nice.

Serve it with lots of fresh grated coconut garnished along with Green chutney as side dish/ Dip. Perfect tea time snack for your family too.

  18. Hi raks...

    This is the first time i am commenting.... I tried a lot of dishes from your website... It comes out so well and my husband enjoys too :P..

    I tried Khandvi .... it came out as you had posted.... but while rolling it it some pieces started breaking off.. What could be the reason...???

    Thanks a lot for a wonderful website.. keep rocking :D

    1. If it's little bit thick then it breaks while rolling.

    2. u didnt showed the pik while filling

  19. Wow ! mouth watering here.

  20. I had completely forgotten about Khandvi... should make some tomorrow morning. thanks for reminding me!

  21. delicious raji....awesome photo

  22. so tasty and tempting snack.. I also so scared to try this one.. now u have given me a boost

  23. vare va akka:) super starter

  24. Pl give the recipe of the green chutney also .

  25. I tried the reciepe today, and could not get the batter to the correct consistency. What is the indicator to know that you have cooked it enough - it was sticky, right through... Can you please give an indicator as to the consistency? Thanks.

    1. The colour will be different, between raw and cooked. Hope u will understand when I upload a video.

  26. lovely pics..and which is the photo editor that you use

  27. Beautifully pictured! Like some one else asked, how do u edit ur pictures?

  28. I love khandvi Raks. I used to make it very often around 5 years ago as my daughter liked them a lot! I learn it from a bihari friend. I used to add kala namak in the batter and this would make it so tangy and tasty!
    I love it with sweet chutney and green chutney. Lovely pics Raks.

  29. dropping by after so long. the first pic is gorgeous raks :)

  30. Hi,
    This is first dish i tried from ur blog. I did exactly as u said. but till cooked batter was fine but after i spread it din't dry at all.. n i cudn't cut them too. I don't know mistake.. :(

    Very nice collection of recipies.. :)

    1. I have updated the video. Refer the video and try again, sure it will come out nice.

  31. can i put any other cooked filling on the layer before we roll it?

  32. i think we can add some slit green chili while poppu.. tht way there will be some spiciness.. btw i luv khandvis a lot

  33. That looks really easy to make & your pics are drool worth.

  34. Adding ginger and chilly paste to the batter takes it to a different level. Else, we can also add slit green chillies to the tempering. Yummy khandvies

  35. It's one of the pressure task given to Master chef Kitchen Superstar Contest in Star plus... You have done it just like that..

  36. U my it seem be easy. Wl try

  37. if anyone would have told me this i would never have even imagined making this, ure awesome and it came out damn good. more than the taste, the shaping was the one i was worried a lot about and u did not fail me :)) thanks :))

  38. You have nailed it!!
    Super kalakita poo

  39. great job raji!!! khandvi looks awesome!! i

  40. This dish is like a gem in the king's crown. I am thankful for sharing the recipe of such lovely vegetarian dish.

  41. The dish came perfectly well when i tried the first time! And the second time flunked :/ I didnt have enough curd and added more water instead..dont know if that was the problem or should I have been mixing in heat for much longer time.
