  1. Prepare the Batter:
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the gram flour (besan), semolina (rava), ginger-green chili paste, lemon juice, sugar, turmeric powder, salt, and oil. Mix well.

    • Gradually add water to the mixture to make a smooth batter. The batter should be thick yet flowing consistency. Make sure there are no lumps in the batter.

    • Grease a round steel or aluminum plate with oil. You can also use a baking dish for steaming the khaman.

    • Now, add eno fruit salt to the batter and quickly mix it in one direction. The batter will become frothy and increase in volume.

    • Immediately pour the batter into the greased plate or baking dish.

  2. Prepare a steamer:
    • Prepare a steamer by heating water in a large pot or steamer pan. Place a stand or a small bowl at the bottom to elevate the plate above the water level.

    • Carefully place the plate with the batter in the steamer and cover it with a lid.

    • Steam the khaman on medium heat for about 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the khaman comes out clean.

    • Once steamed, remove the plate from the steamer and allow it to cool for a few minutes.

    • Cut the steamed khaman into square or diamond-shaped pieces.

  3. For the tempering:
    • For the tempering, heat the oil in a small pan. Add mustard seeds and let them crackle. Then, add sesame seeds, asafoetida chopped green chilies and curry leaves. Sauté for a few seconds.

    • Pour this tempering over the steamed khaman and spread it evenly.

    • Garnish with grated coconut and fresh coriander leaves.
