Handvo (vegetable and lentil cake)
Take a flat bottom kadai. Add the oil and pop the mustard seeds. Add cumin seeds, sesame seeds, asafoetida and curry leaves. When done, add the dough into the kadai. Flatten dough gently and be careful not to mix through the dough. Cover with a lid and keep in low flame for 15 mins or so till the sides of the dough are crisp and it starts separating from the kadai. Gently turn the dough over. I used a greased tava and turned the dough onto the tava and cooked using the tava on low flame till the dough was cooked through and through (check using a sharp knife to see if it comes out clean when inserted in the handvo). I also covered the handvo on the tava with the same kadai that I had cooked it in. After about 5-10 mins the handvo should be done. Carefully transfer to a plate and cut into wedges. Serve with any green chutney. Serves 3.
