Mini Beet Root Dhokla

Beetroot Mini Dhokla’s are steamed cakes  made with lentils , rice and semolina . They are topped with beetroot to make them healthy and attractive as well .

Dhokla’s make a quick snack for the kid’s lunch box . It takes just about 5-7 minutes for the water to boil and another 5-7 minutes to make these mini ones . All in all you are done in flat 15 minutes , provided your batter is ready at night . You could pour the batter in a round steel plate too , and cut the Dhokla’s into rectangular pieces .

We get ready made dhokla flour and it has to be soaked for a few hours , so soak it with a tablespoon of curd . Adding semolina is optional , I wanted a new variation so decided to add it . If you do not have the dhokla flour you could soak rice and lentils and make . Beetroot gives these a pretty color , besides making them healthy . Pack some chutney with these dhoklas and your kids and will surely get back a empty lunch box back .
