Dal Dhokli Recipe Cooking Method:

1. To make dough for dhokli, add all ingredients dhoklis list in a large bowl apart of oil and water. Mix well. Then add oil and mix again well to make sure oil is mixed properly. Make the dough using warm water like chapatti dough. Divide the dough into 4 or 5 pieces, and roll out each piece into a round or rectangle about as thick as a chapatti. Use sharp knife or pizza cutter to cut into diamond pieces about 2″ X 2″ in size. Separate all dhokli pieces from each other and leave aside for at least half an hour to two hours.

2. Cook dal with turmeric powder, salt and garam masala in a pressure cooker or in a large pan until it is overcooked and mushy. Whisk it to make sure it is smooth.

3. Add all dhokli pieces one by one in a boiling dal. Add lemon juice, chopped coriander, grated ginger and jaggery. Stir gently and cook for 5-7 mins or until dhokli is cooked (add some water as when dhokli is cooked, dal will get thicker too).

4. Heat the oil in separate pan. Add mustard seeds, fenugreek seeds and cumin seeds. When the seeds crackle, add asafoetida (hing powder) and red chillies. Stir well, turn off the heat and add curry leaves. Stir for few secs.

5. Add this tadka to boiling daal dhokli and mix well.

6. Finally turn off the heat and garnish dal dhokli with chopped coriander. Leave it for 5-7 mins before serving.

Serve daal dhokli hot squeezing lemon juice on it.
