The khandvi is an awesome steamed food, Absolutely delicious and extremely Healthy. This Gujrati recipie is now one of the world wide famous dish and is being served in Cocktail partys where people are just loving it.
However the preparation of Khandvi needs whole lot of Patience and hell Lot of Strength.
