1½ cup ready handvo mix
1/4 cup grated bottle gourd
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped carrot
1/4 cup chopped broccoli
1/4 cup green peas
1/4 tsp soda bi-carb
1/4 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp ginger-green chilli paste
1/2 tbsp grated garlic
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
2 tbsp oil
salt to taste
Luke warm water to make handvo batter
Sunflower seeds and Sesame seeds for garnishing
- In a large mixing bowl, take ready handvo mix and prepare thick mixture with water. Keep it aside for 30 minute.
After half an hour, preheat your oven to 180°C.
Combine all vegetables and dry ingredients in to handvo batter. Except soda bi-carb and lemon juice. Mix everything well.
Now, add soda bi-carb and lemon into the mixture and mix it well. It will make batter foamy.
Grease the baking tray with little oil and pour the batter in it. You can be creative and use any shape. I have used muffin tray. You can also use cake tin.
Sprinkle some sunflower seeds and sesame seeds over it.
Cover baking tray with aluminum foil and bake at 180°C for 30 minutes.
Now remove the foil and let it cook for another 10-15 minutes until light golden crust forms.
Let it rest for a while, around 10-15 minutes and serve.
You can also add hot oil tempering on it once it ready. To prepare tempering, heat some oil in a small skillet, add musterd seeds, asafoetida and few curry leaves in it.
Now drizzle this over handvo.
you can serve it with ground nut oil and chat masala mix, green chutney, plain yogurt.
To make ground nut oil mix add 1 tsp chat masala to 1 tbsp oil and enjoy…
