Moong dal handvo is a popular savoury cake among the natives of gujarat. Here, we have replaced rice with lentils in order to enhance the recipe's protein content. Rawa adds crunch and makes the handvo crisper. Cut it into pieces after cooling slighty, as it will be soft inside and you will not get proper pieces. Tempering adds the flavour to this dish, but those who are health conscious can omit it or use only 1 tsp oil for tempering.
  • 1 cup yellow moong dal (split yellow gram) paste , refer handy tip
  • 2 tbsp semolina (rava)
  • ¼ cup grated carrot
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped coriander (dhania)
  • 1 tbsp fresh curds (dahi)
  • ½ tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp ginger-green chilli paste
  • salt to taste
  • 2 tsp fruit salt
  • 2 tsp oil
  • ½ tsp mustard seeds ( rai / sarson)
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds (til)
  • ½ tsp asafoetida (hing)
  1. Combine the moong dal paste, semolina, carrots, coriander, curds, sugar, ginger-green chilli paste and salt together in a bowl and mix well to make a batter.
  2. Just before cooking, sprinkle the fruit salt and add 2 tsp of water over it.
  3. When the bubbles form, mix gently.
  4. Heat the oil in a non-stick kadhai and add the mustard seeds.
  5. When the seeds crackle, add the sesame seeds and asafoetida and sauté on a medium flame for a few seconds, while stirring continuously.
  6. Pour the batter in a non-stick kadhai and spread it evenly to make a thick layer, cover and cook on a slow flame for 7 to 8 minutes or till the base turns golden brown in colour and crisp.
  7. Lift the handvo gently using 2 large flat spoons and turn it over to the other side.
  8. Cover and cook on a slow flame for another 5 to 7 minutes or till it turns golden brown in colour. Keep aside.
