Sev Khamani | How to make Surti Sev Khamani

Sev Khamani

Sev Khamani is popular Gujarati Breakfast dish from Surat. Sev Khamani is traditionally made from Dhokla and also known as Amiri Khaman. While this is a dish served for Breakfast, it makes a wonderful meal for anytime.

When you go through the recipe, you would understand that this might have come about because one had excess khaman or Dhokla on hand, maybe from a previous meal and it is enhanced or beautified into a different avatar that’s very delicious and makes a wonderful meal. I remember this from our visit to Ahmadabad for our BM#25 Meet, where Vaishali made sure we tasted all the street food that was available. It was such a memorable tour.

I had this recipe challenged for Indian Cooking Challenge, one of the finest events I have hosted, where we cooked traditional Indian dishes. Unfortunately, I was not able to make it then. When I had picked up steamed dishes as the topic, I spent quite some time pondering which dish should be taken, when I suddenly remembered that I am still to make this dish. I was glad I had time during the weekend to complete this dish and it indeed was a filling dinner for us.

Sev Khamani is the second Steamed Dish I made for BM#84 Week 3. I totally enjoyed this meal.

The khamani can be made in advance but the Sev and rest of the garnishes should be added only at the time of serving.

  1. So addictive looking sev khamani. I am going to try it today itself. This is breakfast time and I am drooling over it,not fair. Btw did you use yogurt to make the khaman?? I see something like that in the pictures but not in the ingredients.

  2. Wow, mouthwatering sev khamani. What a nice way to use up leftover khaman and would not mind making it from scratch, as you did..
