Handvo is a Gujarati traditional dish made with several batters. We utilise a batter of green moong dal and mixed vegetables in this delectable variation. Small amounts of semolina and besan give the handvo its ideal texture, while green chillies, ginger, and coriander, as well as an aromatic tempering, give it its delicious flavour. Green Moong Dal Handvo gets a rustic and homely flavour and texture from being cooked simply in a covered skillet, and you'll adore biting into it. Take care not to break the handvo when turning it over in the pan.

In a mixer, combine the drained green moong dal and ½ cup water, and blend until a coarse mixture is formed.
Transfer the mixture to a large mixing bowl and stir in the semolina, besan, coriander, green chilli paste, garlic paste, ginger paste, salt, and ¼ cup water.
Add the fruit salt and 2 tsp of water evenly over it just before creating the handvo and stir lightly.
In a 125 mm (5") non-stick pan, heat 1½ tbsp oil and add 1 tsp mustard seeds, ¼ tsp carom seeds, 1 Kashmiri red chilli, 1 tsp sesame seeds, ¼ tsp asafoetida and sauté for a few seconds.
½ of the batter should be poured over it and spread evenly.

Using two large flat spoons, gently lift the handvo and turn it over to the other side.
