Tawa Handvo

Tawa Handvo is a Gujarati Special Dish made with rice and lentils. It can be referred to as Savory Rice Lentil Cake, made healthy by including vegetables in it.

This handvo can be cooked in different ways, like tawa, baked and latest would be the Insta Pot methods. I will be sharing how I made Tawa Handvo with mixed vegetables in the cake.

We are doing our day 2 of Mandatory week in BM#104 Sweets & Snacks, with Gujarati Special Handvo and all the members participating will be sharing their own take on this recipe. Since I am doing both, I had to come up with different recipes and different cooking methods.

For this recipe, I managed to make two different recipes in two different cooking methods. If you are interested to know how I made this in a different method, check out Spice your Life!
