Microwave Khandvi

Khandvi is very popular Gujarati farsan ( type of snack). Traditionally Farsans were always served as a part of full meal, but because of its popularity people have it as a snack that can be had at anytime of the day.Khandvi is also a very light dish and has very little oil. It can be prepared in real quick time with the use of Microwave. The only difficult part while preparing is the rolling of the Khandvi, but a little practice can help in becoming perfect.
