Dal Dhokli is a popular dish in Maharashtra and Gujarat that consists of strips of wheat flour flatbread fried in a mouthwatering dal. The traditional Gujarati Dal Dhokli Recipe is fairly lengthy, but the end result is delicious, fantastic, and well worth the effort.

Dal Dhokli



Step 1

This Gujarati dish is a beautiful combination of spices and dal. Here's a simple recipe that you can make with things you probably already have on hand. In a large mixing bowl, combine the wheat flour, turmeric, jeera powder, chopped coriander, salt, and a little oil. Add enough water to produce chapati dough, then knead the flour into tiny balls and roll out like chapatis. Cut them into even-sized squares. If you want spicy cuisine, add a sprinkle of red chilli powder when kneading the dough; this will enhance the flavour of the Dhokli by adding a spicy touch.

Step 2

Then, in a large saucepan, heat lots of water. When the water begins to boil, add the dhokli pieces and simmer until they are tender. Remove excess water and keep the dhokli pieces separate.

Step 3

The dal should next be pressure cooked in just enough water until tender. Then, in a kadhai, heat the oil and Rani Refined Oil over a low-medium temperature. When it's heated, add the bay leaf, curry leaves, cumin seeds, and asafoetida powder. After a minute of stirring, add coriander powder, red chilli powder, jeera powder, and turmeric powder to the ground spices.

Step 4

Quickly combine all of the ingredients, then pour the cooked dal over them and season with salt. Cook for a few minutes, then add the dhokli pieces and cook for another 1-2 minutes. To enhance the flavour of the dal, drizzle it with melted Rani Refined Oil just before serving. You're done for the day if you pair it with hot chapatis. You can also serve this with plain rice, pulao, or veg biryani.
