Khaman is a very common dish you will find in any Rajasthani or Gujarati household . This has been my favorite dish from childhood days. It is a very easy preparation and can be served for breakfast or snacks.. They are many different ways of preparing Khaman and don’t mistake this with the Nylon Khaman those are prepared with Besan and I have never got that dish right till now.
