  • 1 cup Rice soaked for 4 to 5 hours
  • Cooking Oil as required
  • Salt to Taste


  • Wash and soak the rice in water overnight or 5 to 6 hours. Once soaked well, drain the water and grind into a smooth thick batter adding little water at a time.
  • Transfer the ground Ghavan batter into a bowl and add the salt, if required more water to adjust the consistency. The batter should not be very thick nor very thin.
  • Cover the batter and keep it aside for 10 to 15 minutes.
  • When ready to make the Ghavan, heat a nonstick tawa and grease with some cooking oil on it. Take a ladleful of batter and pour as a circle while you rotate the tawa as well for the batter to cover the whole area. Reduce heat.
  • Drizzle little cooking oil all around and cook it until light brown. Now, flip it and cook it on the other side too.
  • Serve the Ghavan hot.
