Gujarati cuisine has blessed us with a plethora of delectable treats. Dhokla, khandvi, thepla, and khakhra have all found their way into our kitchens and have become our own. Despite having a long coastline with various seafoods, the Gujarati cuisine primarily consists of vegetarian dishes made with vegetables, lentils, spices, and various local ingredients. These ingredients also help the Gujarati cuisine to have a character of its own, making it stand out in the lot. And one such Gujarati delicacy which has indeed left an impression on us is the delicious handvo! This delightful recipe is crisp on the outside and spongy soft from inside. It's typically made with a combination of dals and served with a side of chutney. The preparation of this dish is pretty simple. A handvo also makes a nutritious breakfast on any given day, thanks to its high protein content!
