  2. Grease a medium sized baking dish with a little oil. Preheat the oven to 150ᵒC.
  3. When the batter is fermented, add choice of vegetable, salt, ginger-chilli paste, sugar, asafoetida, and two tbsp of oil and soda bicarbonate and mix it with little water.
  4. Mix the batter very lightly and pour it into a greased baking dish. Take a pan, heat 4 tbsp oil, add mustard, peanuts and sesame seeds. When they splutter, add asafoetida, red chillies and curry leaves.
  5. Pour the tempering over the Handva batter and bake it in a preheated oven for 30 – 35 minutes until it forms a golden crust and knife comes out clean.
  6. Remove from oven and cool. Cut into squares and serve with green chutney or sweet-sour pickle.
