Traditionally Ghavan is made on “bida cha tava”. Serve Ghavane anytime of the day with  Chutney or sweetened coconut milk, Chavli chi Usal, Malvani Chicken rassa.

Ghavane can be prepared fast and does not need any pre-preparation time. This is the reason why I am including  it in the #Cooking Carnival where my chosen theme is Simple and Healthy Old Age recipes. In case you are diabetic, you will have to check with your dietician before you pop in more than 1-2. My father-in-law is diabetic so when I made these I  saw to it that I did not add to his sugar levels by not making any sweet (he does eat a little sweet) or make any starchy vegetable.

Start your day with Ghavan with any gravy  hot off the non-stick pan and enjoy!

I have served Ghavane here with Usal, Pavtanche Usal , Vaal ,field beans, lima beans are the other names of Pavte.
