Kandavi aka Suralichi Wadi - Repost for the event

Khanvadi is a popular Gujrati delicacy and google is kind enough to tell me that it is called Suralichi Wadi in Maharashtra. When I enjoyed it first time at a snack shop, it looked like a very tough recipe to me, due to its spiral look. When I tried the traditional recipe it was very time taking but the microwave version is too easy. Now I  make it any time without much effort


Besan -1/2 cup

Yogurt - 1/2 cup

Water 1 1/2 cup

Turmeric pd - 1/4 tsp

Salt - 3/4 tsp

Cornstarch - 1 tbsp

Hing - a big pinch

Red chilli pd - 1/2 tsp

For Stuffing

coriender leaves finely chopped

Grated coconut - 1/2 cup

Sugar - 1 tsp

For Tempering :

Oil - 2 tbsp

Hing a big punch

Mustard seeds - 2tsp


In a large microwave safe bowl, boil the water. In another microwave safe bowl mix besan, cornstarch, hing, turmeric pd, salt, red chilli powder and yogurt. Add little water and make a smooth paste. Be sure that there is no lump in the paste. Add the boiled water to this paste. Mix well. Cook uncover in microwave for 2 mins.
Remove from microwave and stir to break up any lumps. Microwave again for 2 mins. Use whisk to blend well.
Spread the batter on the back of the baking sheet and with a flat spatula spread it thin. Once the baking sheet is full use another baking sheet. Repeat this process untill the batter is thinly spread. You can lay aluminum sheet on a flat surface and spread the batter on that too. Spreading the batter should be done fast before solidifying the batter. Let the batter rest for 5 mins. Cut it into 1 to 1 1/2 inch strips with a knife.

Heat oil in a small pan, add mustard seed and let them pop. Add hing. Spread this tempering on the already spreaded paste. In another bowl mix all the ingredients listed under stuffing. Sprinkle this mixture in the middle of khandavi.

 Gently lift the edge and roll the strip into a tight roll. Repeat rolling and placing rolls on the platter.
Now the platter is ready to serve.
