Sprouted moong handvo | Gujarati Handva recipe

Sprouted moong handvo | Gujarati Handva recipe belongs to Gujarati cuisine. It’s basically a snack that is made using lentils and vegetables.

A savoury cake handvo, that is baked or can be made in cooker or in a simple pan. It’s my favorite as this includes lentils, rice and many vegetables all in one.

So what better way to feed vegetable to your family hiding in something that is so delicious. Similarly Khandvi in microwave in 7 minutes, Lilva kachori/ fresh toovar kachori, Oats dalia vegetables muthia and Kaju karela no onion no garlic recipes are my favourites from Gujarati cuisine.

Gujarati cuisine, my favorite

Being born and raised in Gujarat, I like to eat all kinds of Gujarati cuisine dishes. Handvo is one of them which I keep making often.

What I like the most about handvo is that it is perfect snack for everyone, as this includes rice, lentils, vegetables like bottle gourd, fenugreek leaves (methi) and carrots. It is flavoured & spiced with fresh ginger and green chilies.

In the last it is tempered with curry leaves, mustard seeds, sesame seeds and dried red chillies.

Sprouted moong handvo | Gujarati Handva recipe

After making Moong kabas, I had some leftover soaked moong beans. So I decided to sprout it but wanted to use these to make something different. So while searching recipes I find the interesting way to use it here.

Ingredients required to make handvo

Generally handvo is made using rice, mix of lentils like chana dal, tur dal, urad dal and vegetables like bottle gourd and methi/fenugreek leaves.

But here to make it more nutritious I have added sprouted whole moong and semolina/sooji.

It is tempered with curry leaves, mustard seeds and seasame seeds.

Serving suggestions

Serve this delicious Handva with Dhania pudina chutney or it tastes best with hot cup of masala tea or coffee.

 

Step by step instructions and pictorial presentation to make handvo

Clean, wash and soak rice, and all lentils like chana, moong, toor/arhar, and urad dal in water for about 1 hour. Drain it from water and make a coarse paste in the mixer jar.

Now mix fine variety of semolina, curd, coarse paste of rice & lentils. To this add turmeric powder, red chilli powder. Mix well and keep aside for 5 mins so that it soaks curd and fluffs up.

Add ginger paste, par boiled & crushed moong sprouts, coarsely crushed peanuts, powdered cinnamon, sugar, and vegetables like cabbage and carrot. Mix little water to get desired consistency, if required. Whisk everything well.

 

In addition to this pour lemon juice over baking soda. This step should be done just before you are ready to pour the batter in the pan/tin.

Mix well once. Pour the batter into greased springform tin and do the seasoning with oil, mustard seeds, seasame seeds and curry leaves.

To bake this preheat an OTG at 175°C for 10 minutes. Cover the tin with aluminium foil and bake it for 20  minutes. After that remove foil and bake it again for 20 more minutes.

Once the top of handva turns golden brown do the check test by inserting a knife.

Let it cool for some time after that cut into pieces. Serve with Dhania pudina chutney or tomato ketchup.

Notes:

Handvo can be baked in oven or steam cooked in pressure cooker or cooked on non-stick tawa/kadai.
