Indian cuisines have one thing in common. There are many healthy and wholesome recipes in every Indian cuisine. Gujarati meals are one of the most popular amongst Indians. The most common being dhokla and thepla. Gujarati recipes use a lot of pulses and vegetables along with ample use of milk products.
Handvo is one recipe which I found, is very versatile when it comes to the method of cooking. It is another example of a wholesome meal.
Handvo is like a savoury pancake. It is traditionally made in a pan and cooked over low flame. It is then served as breakfast with chutney.
I first had handvo at a friends place. I immediately knew that I am gonna make some soon. The flavours of simple spices sesame seeds and the juices of the chunda pickle made it last in my head.
Soon after I tried my hands on this recipe, I did experiment with it . And tried my versions of cooking, with it.
In this post, I have tried speaking about three ways of cooking handvo. The recipe makes an interesting muffin style savoury snack for kids.
I have tried, not to take away the traditional authenticity of the recipe.
When baked, handvo reminds of breakfast muffins served in European culture. These muffins are equally liked by kids.
This is a to keep recipe as it is healthy simple and delicious.
