Instant Microwave Khandvi (Suralichi Wadi)

Try this super fast microwave recipe for Khandvi and serve it as an appetizer for your next get-together.
 One day while browsing for recipes I came across this recipe and I tried it come out very good.

  • Besan/Chickpea (Gram) Flour – 1 cup
  • Yogurt plain – 1 cup
  • Water - 2 cups
  • Turmeric Powder – 1/4 tsp
  • Asafoetida – pinch
  • Salt – to taste

For Seasoning:
  • Oil – 4 tsp
  • Mustard Seeds – 1 tsp
  • Asafoetida – pinch
  • Green Chillies – 2 (cut length wise)
  • Grated Coconut – 1 Tbsp
  • Cilantro (Coriander) – chopped for garnishing


  • In a large microwave safe bowl, mix Besan (Gram Flour), Yogurt, Turmeric Powder, Salt and Asofoetida.
  • Add Water and blend the mixture with egg beater to a smooth (lump-free) paste.
  • Cook uncovered in the microwave for 1 1/2 minutes.
  • Remove from microwave and stir to break up any lumps.
  • Microwave again for 1 1/2 minutes and stir again.
  • Microwave for last 1 1/2 minutes and mix well. You may have to use a beater to remove any lumps.
  •  Meanwhile lay out Aluminum Foil in long sheets on the counter top. This  should be done while batter is cooking. Once the batter is out of the microwave, you have to work fast before it solidifies.
  • Spoon batter along one edge of the foil and with a flat spatula, gently pull the batter down along the foil spreading it thin.
  • Once the foil is completely covered, start on the next piece of foil. Repeat until all batter is thinly spread.
  •  Let the batter rest for 5 minutes and allow it to solidify.
  •  With a sharp knife, cut long 1 to 1 1/2 inch strips in the solid batter.
  •  Gently lift the edge and roll the strip into a tight roll. You can make the rolls as big as you like. If they get too thick, cut it off and start a new roll.
  • Repeat rolling and placing rolls on a platter.
  •  Sprinkle Coconut and Cilantro (Coriander) over the Khandvi.
  •  Heat Oil in a small skillet.
  •  Add Mustard Seeds, allow them to pop.
  • Add Asofoetida, Green Chilies and switch off heat.
  •  Sprinkle seasoning over the Khandvi.
  • Serve at room temperature & enjoy.
