BM # 53 Week 1 Day 3
As soon as we talk of snacks I think of steamed snacks, and among Gujarati snacks nothing can be more popular than the dhoklas.These are perfect as breakfast or tea time snacks or even to pack for kids lunch box. I can have them as a meal too.So for the third day I have got these Dhoklas where I have added grated carrot and baby spinach leaves to make them healthy. I served these with Spinach Chutney , Thus making the whole meal very healthy.
2 cups rice
1/4 cup Urad Daal
1/4 cup Chana Daal
1/4 cup Moong Daal
1/4 cup toor Daal
1 cup curd

Grind them coarsely.
Add curd and let it stand for an hour or two.
Add the rest of the ingredients , except carrot and spinach and mix well.
Keep a steamer to heat.
Grease two plates.
Pour the two ladle fuls of batter in the greased plate,
Roll the plate, so that the batter spreads evenly.
Spread a layer of grated carrots.
Again pour another ladle ful of the batter, to cover the carrots.
Place the spinach leaves all over , pour another ladle of batter to cover partially the spinach leaves.
Close the steamer lid and steam the dhoklas for 8-10 minutes or till done.

Let stand for a few minutes.
Cut into pieces and place them in serving plate.
