Microwave Nylon Khaman

Thought of starting a new series on Food Court - "Under 30 Mins"!!! And here is the first recipe... A very popular Gujarati delicacy "Nylon Khaman". 

Traditionally, its prepared in steamer which takes a little longer to have it ready on plate. But for those who loves it, but refrains from making it 'coz of its method to follow... I tried making it using microwave and it turned out to be a super-successful experiment. It was so spongy and yummy!!!

Ready to serve in: 12-15 mins
Makes: 10-12 pieces


For Khaman--

1 cup Besan (Chickpea Flour)
2 tbsp Sooji (Semolina)
1/8 tsp Turmeric Powder
2 tsp Sugar
2 tsp Lemon Juice
1/2 tsp Ginger-Green Chillies Paste
1 tsp Eno Fruit Salt
1 cup Water
Salt, to taste

For Tadka--

1 tbsp Oil
1/4 tsp Mustard Seeds
1/4 tsp Sesame Seeds
A pinch of Hing (Asafoetida)
3 tbsp Water

Chopped Coriander, for garnish


- Take all ingredients (except Eno) of Khaman in a bowl and mix them well.
- Add water gradually to make smooth batter of pouring consistency with no lumps present.
- Grease a deep microwave proof dish (or baking tray) with 2-3 drops of oil.
- Add eno fruit salt to batter and whisk it for 2-3 mins to make the batter fluffy.
- Pour it to a tray and cover it with cling wrap.
- Microwave it on high for 4-5 mins and take it out removing cling wrap. Let it rest for 5 mins and then cut into pieces.
- Transfer all the pieces to serving plate/bowl.
- Heat oil in tadka (tempering) pan and add mustard seeds. Once it splutters, add sesame seeds and hing into it. Turn off the heat and add water.
- Pour this watery tadka over all khaman evenly.
- Garnish with chopped coriander and it's ready to serve!!! 


- Citric Acid (limbu na phool) can be used to replace lemon juice.
- Make sure cling wrap doesn't touch your khaman at all. A microwave proof lid can be used instead.
