Handvoh (Vegetable Bake dish)
1 cup Rice flour
1 cup Yellow moong dal flour
1 medium Bottle gourd
2 medium Carrots
2 tablespoons Corn kernels
3 tablespoons Chopped coriander leaves
3-4 green chillies
3 cups Butter milk
3/4 teaspoon Soda bi-carb
1 teaspoon Urad dal
1 teaspoon Bengal gram dal
1/2 teaspoon Cumin seeds
1/2 teaspoon Mustard seeds
2 tablespoons Oil
Salt (As per taste)

Grate the carrots and bottle gourd. Boil the corn. Mix the flours, soda bicarbonate, salt and buttermilk in a large vessel. Keep aside for 5-6 hours to ferment. Add the grated bottle gourd, carrots, corn, coriander leaves and green chillies and salt as per taste.

Heat oil in a small pan, add the cumin seeds, mustard seeds, urad dal and chana dal. Fry till the seeds start spluttering. Add this seasoning into the batter. Mix well. Pour the batter into a greased oven-proof dish and bake in a pre heated oven at 280 C for 10 minutes. Reduce the temperature of the oven to about 180-200 C and bake for another 30 minutes. Insert a knife or skewer to check whether the handva has cooked. If the knife comes out clean, the handva is cooked.
