Hi Trupti,
I have a question.
when cooking the besan mixture in non stick pan..Should it be sauted in with light oil or just cook without oil.
If oil is needed then how much oil to use?

Trupti said...

Hello There,
As pan is already non stick you don't need oil batter will easyly come out. If you have more questions then fill free to leave a comment.

Thanks for visiting my blog and keep visiting for more recipes.

Hey, Trupti. You said that the mixture can be cooked in the microwave. For how long, should the microwave be set at so that it cooks properly. I mean for how many minutes? I love khandvi, but often do not feel like bothering with the stirring.
