Khaman is a popular and delicious snack from Gujarat in India. It is made from besan flour and has a spongy and fluffy texture. Khaman is a perfect snack for any day and can be enjoyed with hot tea or coffee.
To make Khaman, besan flour is mixed with spices and steamed until it becomes spongy and fluffy. It is then garnished with a tadka (tempering) of mustard seeds, curry leaves, and green chillies, adding flavour to the dish.
Khaman is not only delicious but also healthy as it is made from gram flour, a good protein and fibre source. It is also gluten-free, making it a perfect snack for people with gluten intolerance.
