When I got married I used to wonder at the dinner style of Gujrati’s . They normally eat only one snack at a time . If they make something like Dahi Wada they would just eat Dahi Wada , I being new to Gujrati culture could not understand this concept, but over the years I like this concept .

 

We follow this concept but perhaps twice a week . There are some dishes that are our favourite and our menu rotates around them . Steamed Dhoklas  are a hot favourite of the family . They are steamed lentil cakes and full of protein . I have made umpteen versions of these and today I shall share yet another version .

  1. Yummy ! Didn’t know potato was used for stuffing ; when I saw the recipe name, I was expecting paneer or even safed dhokla to be steamed along with the yellow version .. this grilling is new to me 🙂
