Method 
For the stuffing

  1. Heat the oil in a non-stick pan, add the green peas / corn and sauté on a slow flame for 3 to 4 minutes, while stirring continuously.
  2. Add the sugar, salt, ginger-green chilli paste, lemon juice, coriander and 1 tbsp of water, mix well and sauté on a medium flame for another 2 minutes. Keep aside to cool.

For the khandvi

  1. Combine the besan, curds-water mixture, lemon juice, ginger-green chilli paste, turmeric powder, asafoetida and salt together in a deep non-stick pan and mix well to make a smooth batter (taking care no lump remains).
  2. Cook on a slow flame, while stirring continuously till it becomes thick (approx. 8 to 10 minutes).
  3. Spread a spoonful of the batter on a greased thali and wait for a few seconds and try to roll up, if it doesn’t then cook for few more minutes, check once more till done.
  4. Divide the batter into two equal portions. Spread each portion on reverse greased side of 2 thalis (approximately 10″ in diameter) evenly to make a thin uniform layer using a spatula while the batter is still hot.
  5. After spreading the mixture on on a thali, spread the prepared stuffing evenly over it.
  6. When cool, cut the khandvi on each thali lengthwise (approx. 1½” in width) into equal portions (as shown in the image) and roll up each gently.
  7. Repeat with the remaining thali and place khandvis in a serving plate. Keep aside.
  8. For the tempering, just before serving heat the oil in a small non-stick pan and add the mustard seeds.
  9. When the seeds crackle, add the sesame seeds, asafoetida, curry leaves and green chillies and sauté on a medium flame for a few seconds, while stirring continuously.
  10. Pour the tempering over the khandvis. Serve immediately garnished with coconut and coriander.
