Suralichi vadi or Khandwi

A great looking, delicious finger food for the crowd is chickpea roll ups. The same dish is named differently in various regions of India. In Maharashtra it is called "Suralichya vadya" surali is a roll and wadi is a bite size piece. In Gujarat it is famous as Khandwi ..

Here is what we need -

This recipe should make 20 pieces

  • 1 cup chickpea flour
  • 4 tbs plain yogurt
  • 2 green chilies
  • salt per taste
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 sp ginger paste
  • 1/2 sp turmeric powder

 for seasoning -

  • 1 sp mustard seeds
  • pinch of chili powder
  • cilantro
  • 2 sp oil
  • 1 sp dry grated coconut

Lets get started by collecting things that we gonna need to prepare this. Take a non-stick pan to cook chickpea batter. You would need an aluminium foil to spread the better once its ready. Well once you start preparing the batter you aren't gonna get time to do this so first thing is - Spread around 40 inch foil on the table or any plane surface (almost twice the size of your rectangular place mats).

Grate the chilies and ginger. Beat the yogurt by adding water.

In the non stick pan take flour and add above ingredients. Add salt and turmeric. You have to cook this on Medium heat to make not too thick batter.

Keep stirring constantly. Make sure there are no lumps at all.

This should take about 10 to 12 minutes. turn the stove  to low and by using spatula try to spread a little batter on the back side of plain plate, leave it there for a minute and see if you could roll it with ease. If not then it needs some more cooking otherwise switch off the stove and start spreading the mixture vertically on the sheet you already laid.

Don't spread it too thick.

Spread on the entire sheet and this needs to be done when the batter is hot or else it will not get spread. so make sure you move your hands fast   :- 0

By the time you done spreading all the batter its time you cut the first strip abt 2 inches of the sheet with knife and roll the batter leaving the paper.

This way roll all the batter.

Place it in the serving plate. To make a tampering heat oil, once hot add mustard seeds(you can add sesame seeds if you like) spread this tampering using spoon. garnish with red chili powder, chopped cilantro and grated coconut.

You will love it ...
