Handvo Recipe | Gujarati Handvo Recipe | How to make handvo recipe with step by step pictures and instructions. Handvo is mixed lentil savory steam cake which is very popular in Gujarat. Rice, dal and vegetables like bottle gourd, carrot, beans, peas etc are used to prepare handvo. Rice and dal is soaked and grind to form batter. Then it is allowed to ferment for 8 hours or overnight. I also saw some recipes using eno or baking soda and skip the fermentation process.
It is so healthy and nutritious breakfast or snacks. Serve it with Green Chutney. I felt this is quite similar to south Indian adai which also uses rice and lentils. Handvo can be steamed or baked in oven. I steamed handvo in pan. Bottle gourd is key vegetable used in handvo. We can use any vegetables of our choice. I adapted the recipe from here and made some few changes. We can adjust the proportion of dal according to our preference.
