Dal dhokli

Dal dhokli is an gujarathi dish. It is thicker than soup and a comfort food. This dhokli is a wholesome food  that can be taken in winter.


For dhokli:

Wheat flour - 1 cup
ajwain - 2 tsp
Jeera powder - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
salt and water - as needed

For dal:

Toor dal - 1 cup
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Red chilly powder - 1 tsp
Coriander powder - 1 tbsp
Jeera powder - 1/2 tsp
Garam masala - 1/2 tsp
Lemon juice - 1 tbsp
Salt - as per taste

For tempering:

Ghee - 2 tbsp
Jeera - 1/2 tsp
Bay leaf - 1
Ginger grated- 1/4 tsp
Hing - a pinch
Green chilly -1
Peanuts - 1 tbsp
Curry leaves - 5


To prepare dhokli:

Mix the given ingredients given for dhokli to a soft dough. Then roll into thin strips. Cut into diamond or square shapes and keep aside.

For dal:

Pressure cook the dal with turmeric by adding more water. After it cools down take the water separately and transfer into a sauce pan and add dhoklis one by one into the boiling dal water. When the dhoklis are cooked it comes up.

Then add the cooked dal, red chilly powder, coriander powder, jeera powder, garam masala and salt. If this dal is too thick add some water. Switch off the flame and add coriander leaves and lemon juice.

For tempering, add all the ingredients given in the same order and transfer into dal and serve hot.


While adding dhoklis add one by one otherwise it will all stick together. To know the dhoklis are cooked, when added in water you have to cook till all dhoklis float.
