    Khandvi Ravioli

    Khandvi Ravioli


    Manish Mehrotra, executive chef, Indian Accent, New Delhi shares his signature Khandvi Ravioli recipe.

    About the dish

    I have taken an absolutely Indian dish and given it the treatment of a European pasta. The sweet flavour of the khandvi goes very well with the salty flavour of the goat’s cheese. It’s a no-onion, nogarlic kind of dish – that’s what makes it unique. You can use khandvi as a pinwheel as well and fill it with any other kind of cheese. It’s best served as an appetiser or a snack at a party.

    • a fine sieve and pour into a kadhai.

    • Pour the mixture on the back of a thali and spread evenly and thinly, to about 1-mm-thickness.
