Handvo….the Savory cake

One more traditional Gujarati farsan. Handvo is very tasty and can be prepare with very little oil. Like Thalipith, it is also contains lots of dal & grains, so it's healthy too. Who loves the typically Guajarati taste will surely love this. I tried Tarla Dalal's recipe and it turned out very well.


Rice - 2 cups
Toovar Dal - 1 cup
Urad Dal - 1/4 cup
Moong Dal - 1/4cup
Chana Dal - 1/4 cup
Wheat - 1/4 cup
Sour Curd - 1 cup
Oil - 2 teaspoon
Baking Soda - 1 teaspoon
Sugar - 2 tablespoon
Turmeric powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Whilte pumpkin (Dudhi) - 2 cups
Chopped coriander - 2-3 tablespoon
Green chili- ginger paste- 3 tablespoon
Salt as per taste

For Tempering (Vaghar in Gujarati)
Oil- 2 teaspoon
Mustard seeds - 1 teaspoon
Sesame seeds - 1 teaspoon (I used black one)
Ajwain - 1 teaspoon
Asafetida - 1/2 teaspoon

Wash and soak rice, wheat and all dals for 4-5 hours. Then Drain the water. Coarsely grind to a paste. Add curd into the paste and mix well. Keep overnight for fermentation. Then add grated pumpkin, oil, sugar, salt, turmeric powder, green chili-ginger paste and baking soda into fermented batter and mix well. Grease the baking tin with little oil. Pour the batter into it. On other side make a tempering with given ingredient. Pour the tempering on the batter. It should cover the batter fully. Bake in a preheated oven at 200 C for 30-35 minutes till the crust is golden brown. Traditionally it is prepared in a kadai but it requires lot of oil so I liked this baked version.
