Khandvi / Suralichi Vadi is a savoury snack from Maharashtrian and Gujarati cuisine. Yellowish, tight rolls of gramflour and curd , tempered with spices make a good snack anytime. They are slightly spicy and tangy in taste. It is also known as Surlicha Vadi and Patuli. It is one of the dishes that you can easily make in less than 30 minutes, tasty and ideal to serve with any course of meal.

Any tips for making perfect khandvi?

Like any new recipe, this dish also needs practice. The key to making a perfect khandvi:

  • You need sour butter milk.
  • Take the proper measurement of ingredients.
  • Once it is done, spread it quickly on the greased plate as thin as you can.
  • Sieve the gram flour before using it.
Is there any substitute for buttermilk?

Thick curd can be used, blended and mixed with two glasses of water.

What can one do if the curd is not sour?

It is best to keep a day out prior to making. But incase, you have not kept it or planned in the last minute, lime juice may be added to the batter.
