In this recipe, I serve a cooked lot in different styles with special tempering on it to make it more flavorful. It is a healthy and tasty Gujarati snack that can also be served for morning breakfast or evening snacks. It is very simple and easy to make with all the available ingredients in your kitchen. do try this!
- Firstly, I have used coarse wheat flour which brings a proper consistency and texture to it. you can use regular wheat flour with some rava instead of coarse wheat flour.
- slightly sour buttermilk gives a nice taste to khato lot. also adding masala into buttermilk helps to avoid spoiling while cooking it.
- The dish has to be served immediately once it is removed from the stove. Also, specially added tempering on it makes it more flavourful.
- Lastly, tikho khato lot tastes great when prepared slightly tangy and spicy.
