Handvo (Vegan) – A guest post – Eggless / Gluten / Dairy / Lactose / Casein free treat

I am going over to a friend’s house today with my version of homemade, spicy Indian cake – handvo.

I met Xiaolu through flickr, through her incredible food photographs. Soon I realized that she is a treasure trove of varied talents and also an excellent baker with a liking for vegan bakes too! I am sure you will find her space as irresistible as I do. May I invite you all to join us at Xialou’s for tea and handvo? You might need a napkin to stop the drool. 🙂



Apart from being co-founder of, Harini is a vegan food photographer and recipe developer who earlier blogged at Her love for photography includes people and events. She enjoys feeding birds, loves reading, is crazy about films and TV series, loves music and takes pride in being a 70s child. She draws inspiration from memories of childhood, lunch-boxes and tiffin breaks, and movies, and believes in free-cycling.
