Pour the batter in steamer plate and tap it gently.


Steam it for 10 - 15 minutes on Medium flame with the closed lid.

Open the lid, check for the KHAMAN if it's cooked properly by pricking by tooth pic or knife. It should come out clear.

Add mustered seeds and let them crackle.
Add pinch of hing, splited green chillies and simmer it for a while.
Add 1 cup of water to it.
Add Sugar and let it boil for 2 -4 minutes.


Cut the Khaman in square (rhombus) shape in a plate.

Add this tempering water on the khaman evenly.

Garnish it with chopped coriander leaves.

Serve it hot with green / garlic chutnies (or with any chutney of your choice)>

Enjoy !!!
