15 Minute Handvo

Handvo is one of my favorite Gujarati dish. I love it because it gives me a wholesome meal type of feeling. The balance of all the flavors and the crispy edges are to die for. Handvo can be made many different ways but I am sharing the recipe for quick 15 minute vegetable  Handvo. In traditional Handvo they use Rice and Lentil flour but here we will use semolina. I promise you will love this recipe so
much that you will keep on making it often. It is also perfect for school lunch boxes as my little one loves this one.
