For the preparation, first make Ghavne batter into the bowl. Take 4 bowl of Ghavne flour in the mixing bowl. Now add the 2 glass of water and salt for the taste. Mix it well. Add the water as per the requirement. The batter should not be very thick and should not be very runny. This is very important for making a batter. This is a very important precautionary note.

Heat tawa on medium flame, grease the tawa with the oil once it’s got heated. (For greasing you can use a coconut husk). Pour batter on the tawa with help of ladle. Spread it across the tawa. Drizzle oil on the top and the edges of the Ghavan.  Keep the gas on medium flame. Cook till edges gets separated from tawa. Do not turn the Ghavan (Cook Ghavan from one side only). Now remove the Ghavan and keep in the basket. This is how you can make more Ghavne as per your requirements. Served hot and soft Ghavne with coconut chutney.
