Khandvi - Indian Cooking Challenge

I missed almost all the previous Indian Cooking Challenges, but not this one! I would never give up an opportunity to make khandvi...its one of my favorite Gujarati snacks. They don't always come out great and even this time I barely used half the batter, the rest was too cold to spread:(. But I did enjoy the challenge and the dish was awesome. I made it this morning and after some quick pictures we had it for breakfast...a welcome change. YUMM!!

Recipe adapted from Lataji
1 cup besan
1 cup sour curd
2 cups water
1" piece ginger
3-4 green chillies
1 tbs oil
2 tsps sugar
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
pinch of asafoetida
salt to taste

For tempering:
1 tbs oil
1 tsp mustard seeds
2-3 tbs chopped cilantro
2-3 tbs fresh grated coconut

Blend the ginger and green chili with some curd. Strain the mixture and mix with the remaining curds, water, gram flour, turmeric powder, sugar, oil, asafoetida and salt to form a smooth mixture free of lumps.
Cook the mixture over medium heat stirring continuously. Cook till the mixture starts to leave the sides of the pan, it will have a glossy look.
Spread immediately on a smooth surface into thin sheets. Cool for about 5 minutes.
Cut into broad strips using a knife and gently roll each strip to form spirals.
For the tempering , heat oil in a small pan and add the mustard seeds. Once it splutters, pour evenly over the prepared khandvi. Sprinkle the cilantro and coconut.
