9) Keep stirring continuously with spatula so batter does not stick to the bottom and it won’t form any lumps. Cook it till it gets thick, it might take approximately 5-6 minutes. Cooking time may vary, it depends on the gas heat, depends on quantity you are making, depends on the thick or thin bottom pan you are using. The perfectly cooked batter has to be thick not falling consistency. You will get to know by experience.

NOTE: To check the right consistency, take small amount of batter (about a teaspoon) and spread over the thali, let it cool for a minute and try to peel and roll. If you can do this without having any stickiness meaning it is ready. If it is still sticky then continue cooking for little longer and then check again.

Suggestions from readers:

  • Shawn mentioned in the comment that cut it using pizza cutter, it will make clear lines without pulling.
  • One of the reader Jayshree Dave shares her awesome tips for spreading the batter. She made a big batch khandvi and spread the khandvi batter on big plastic bag instead of spreading on many thalis. This may help you as well, so thought of sharing the photos she sent me in the email.
