Microwave Khandvi

Khandvi is a popular Gujarati snack . Some years back I learn’t the technique to prepare it from Santoshi . Ever since that I have prepared it countless times.. It can be prepared manually , in  microwave or in pressure cooker. I’ve been following microwave method since a year. Special thanks to Santoshi Nayak for the link and Khandvi .Ever since I found this recipe it has become my comfort recipe to prepare Khandvi in Microwave. Next time would want to try pressure cooker method. I have already shared the manual methods of Khandvi in the space earlier. Khandvi is a favourite at our place. So I keep preparing it often. Do give it a try and send me back the feedback. All it takes is just 7 minutes.
