How to Make Nylon Khaman

  • Take all ingredients (except eno) for the khaman in a bowl and mix them.
  • Add water gradually to make a smooth batter of pouring consistency with no lumps present.
  • Grease a deep microwave-proof dish (or baking tray) with 2-3 drops of oil.
  • Add eno fruit and salt to the batter and whisk it for 2-3 minutes to make the batter fluffy.
  • Pour it into a tray and cover it with a cling wrap.
  • Microwave it on high for 4-5 minutes and take it out removing the cling wrap.
  • Let it rest for 5 minutes and then cut it into pieces.
  • Transfer all the pieces to a serving plate/bowl.
  • Heat oil in a tadka (tempering) pan and add mustard seeds.
  • Once it splutters, add sesame seeds and hing into it.
  • Turn off the heat and add water.
  • Spread this watery tadka over the khaman evenly.
  • Garnish with chopped coriander.
