Ghavan is a traditional breakfast recipe from Konkan region of Maharashtra. Traditionally, these are made out of brown rice flour, a pinch of salt, jeera and water to form this batter and immediately these are cooked out like dosas. But I have made it with regular rice flour as I didn’t find brown rice flour.

Ghavan is similar to neer dosa Recipe from Mangalore the only difference is the variety of rice used. Ghavan is often served during festivals and is filled with coconut and jaggery to make a sweet recipe. 

This recipe is good for breakfast and snack and is a quick dish to make. 

Serve Maharashtrian Ghavan Recipe - Rice Flour Crepes with Tomato Garlic Chutney or  Capsicum Chutney or any other chutney of your choice along with a cup of Masala Chai.
