CHICKPEAS FLOUR ROLL/ GUJARATI KHANDVI

CHICKPEAS FLOUR ROLL/ GUJARATI KHANDVI



Some people like talking too much, when we are in their company, we will not get a chance to say our bit. One of my family friends is like that, whenever I visit her, I have never seen her husband talking. She does not give any time or chance to him to talk. Even if the husband will get a small chance to intervene in the middle of the conversation, she will try to correct him by her own style or way as if she knows better than him..... Poor husband. Though she is very good at heart and very good in her profession, I think this is just her habit.


These type of people will not listen to other people's views or opinions during the conversation, whatever the topic might be, they will be so busy either talking about their own things or giving their own views on that topic, and they are not bothered to listen to others.



I read somewhere a very good quote- “Thinking you are good in something is self-confidence but when you think that only you are the best person in something then this is your ego”. I think this type of ego is dangerous. But I also think sometimes people's profession influences the way people talk. Teachers like me would like to explain things with examples even in discussions. But all this depends on the individual or their personal habits too, I guess. Why I am writing all this-- I think I am missing that family friend, because this Khandvi is her favorite dish.



Coming to the dish, this is very simple and light dish with very little ingredients. Light because oil content is very little, still it is very tasty. It goes very well with evening tea or can be eaten as a light breakfast. It can be served as a light snack as a starter with other meals. Even though this dish is simple, it can get tricky because the cooking time is variable so care should be taken when cooking the chickpeas flour; it should be cooked enough so that it can spread thinly on a flat surface smoothly, yet not overcooked and too thick. I think it comes with practice.



RECIPE

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup chickpeas flour
  • 1 cup yoghurt (dahi)
  • 1 cup water
  • salt to taste

For Garnishing
  • 3 tbs dry desiccated coconut
  • 3 tbs oil
  • 1 tbs mustard seeds
  • 2-3 green chillies thinly sliced (optional)
  • 3 tbs sesame seeds
  • Green coriander thinly sliced

Method

  • Mix dahi, water and chickpeas flour, it will look like a paste.
  • Heat wok on a medium high flame and cook this mixture for 25-30 minute till it is slightly thicker and can be spread easily on a flat tray. (Quickly check on a plate, if it is spreadable and can be rolled when cool).
  • Spread the mixture thinly on a greased tray, and leave it to cool.
  • When cold cut into strips and roll in one direction as shown in the picture.

For Garnishing

  • Heat oil in a frying pan, add sesame seeds, when they change the colour slightly, add mustard seeds, green chilli.
  • Spread on khandvi rolls and decorate with green coriander.

  8. And I often worry that I'm that over talkative person that doesn't let anyone get a word in hehehe. Nevertheless, this looks like such a great recipe. I would definitely shut up because I'd be busy eating these rolls :). Happy FF!

  10. Sadhna, I love this, I have missed hearing your stories. When I get nervous I can't stop talking, no one can get in a word, I think that I even ask questions and then I answer them too. Especially when my feelings are hurt, or I want someone to like me, I get so anxious I can't stop. And I'm sure that doesn't make them like me more! LOL This dish is so beautiful, like a work of art. It's amazing that you make the chickpea flour into a look alike for lasagna noodles. They are a stunning dish and I'm sure they taste that way too!
