Served As Breakfast, Snacks
tea time snack ‘Khandvi’ is a very healthy steamed lentil rolls. My twist to the recipe is to add broccoli and Italian herbs in the batter which not only increase the health quotient but imparts a wonderful color to the recipe.

Servings 4


  • 1 cup chickpea flour
  • 1 cup yogurt
  • 1 cup chopped broccoli
  • 1 ½ cups of water
  • 1 tbsp Italian herbs
  • Tempering
  • 1 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp. sesame seeds
  • Salt to taste


  • Add all the ingredients (except the ingredients for tempering) in a blender and grind into a very fine paste.
  • Take a thick bottom pan/non-stick vessel and pour the batter in it. Heat the batter for 10-12 minutes on slow flame stirring continuously to avoid lumps
  • The batter will start leaving the sides of the vessel. Take off the flame and pour it immediately over the kitchen counter (stone/marble) or in a large flat plate.
  • Spred it with a spatula in a thin sheet and leave it for 5 minutes to let it cool
  • Cut into broad strips using a knife. Roll each strip into spiral shaped rolls. Slice each roll into smaller roundels of about 2-3’ length and place them in a serving dish.
  • Heat oil in a wok and crackle sesame seeds for a few second
  • Pour this tempering over the sliced broccoli rolls .serve with tea. Enjoy.


Aluminum foil is also a good choice to spread the batter of rolls for a mess free kitchen later.
