What is Khandvi?

Khandvi is a snack originating from the Indian state of Gujarat. Khandvi uses chickpea flour, also known as Gram flour or besan, along with yogurt to create soft roll-ups. You then season the khandvi with a tempering of spices poured over top. The tempering gives the khandvi a savory flavor that my family craves as a mid-afternoon snack.  Dhokla & Khatta Dhokla are other popular Gujarati snacks that you would love.

How do you make Gujarati Khandvi in an Instant Pot? 

Khandvi is an easy to make recipe, but it does require some careful cooking techniques. It’s important to measure the ingredients exactly for any khandvi recipe.

  • First add the chickpea flour, yogurt(homemade preferable), ginger, green chili, turmeric, salt, and water to a small metal pot that can fit inside the inner pot of your Instant Pot. Use an immersion blender to make a smooth batter. 
  • When the batter is smooth, add the water to the inner pot of the Instant Pot. Place the trivet into the inner pot and place the small metal bowl on the trivet.

  • Put the lid on the Instant Pot and set the release valve to “Sealing”.
  • Set the Instant Pot to manual and pressure cook on high for 12 minutes. When the cooking process ends, do a quick release and carefully remove the lid. 
  • Carefully remove the small metal bowl from the Instant Pot and stir it well. Spread oil on several plates, trays, or your counter-top A. Once the oil is spread, give the batter a quick stir and then spread the batter over the oiled surfaces.

  • You can use a credit card or a dough scraper to evenly spread the batter. You want the batter as even as possible. 
  • Once you’ve spread the batter, allow batter to cool for about 5 minutes. Use a knife to cut the spread, cooled batter into even strips. 
  • When the strips are cut, gently roll the strips into tight rolls.

  • After the rolls are formed, you can start the tempering. To do this, add oil to a small sauce pan and let it heat up over medium heat. 
  • Once the oil is hot, add the Asafoetida ,mustard seeds, sesame seeds and the curry leaves . Pour the tempering over the khandvi rolls. Serve the khandvi while it is still warm.

Is Khandvi Gluten Free?

Yes. This recipe is made by using  chickpea flour / Gram flour. Gluten is a protein found in wheat. Since khandvi does not use wheat flour, it is naturally gluten free.

Is Khandvi vegan?

Khandvi is not vegan. My recipe uses yogurt and other recipes may use buttermilk. But it is a good, healthy snack if you are a vegetarian that eats dairy products.

How long can Khandvi be stored in a refrigerator?

You can store khandvi in the refrigerator for 1 to 2 days. Before you store it, place the khandvi in an airtight container. Let them cool to room temperature before sealing them in to help avoid too much condensation.

When you serve the khandvi, you should warm the khandvi up a bit. You could use a microwave for only a few seconds or place in a warmed oven on a tray. Khandvi is best when served fresh, but as long as you don’t reheat it for long, you can still enjoy it later.
