Paalak Mattar ke Dhokle

BM # 53   Week 1   Day 2

For Day 2 under Snacks all the way I have yet another Dhokla. Yes, again a Sooji ka Dhokla.This Dhokla also has spinach , but it also has puréed fresh green peas and garlic. These two different ingredients change the complete taste of the dhoklas. I have tempered these with just mustard seeds and asafoetida, which also makes a lot of difference in the taste. So enjoy another version of Dhoklas which are a perfect snack.

Add curd to semolina.

Add just enough water to make a soft batter.
Leave it for about 10 minutes.
Add rest of the ingredients and mix well.
Pour the batter in a greased Thali and put to steam.
Steam for 10 minutes .
Check with a knife, the knife should come out clean.
