3 daal dhokla

This is a very easy recipe for a protein-packed Dhokla.

TruN Daal na Dhokla
Dhokla made with 3 daals
1/3 cup chana daal
1/3 cup urad daal
1/3 cup chora daal

Grind the soaked & drained daal with,
1 1/2 " ginger, peeled & chopped
2-3 green chilies (or per taste)
1/2 tsp turmeric powder

Salt to taste
1/3 cup plain yogurt

Mix together,
1/4 tsp eno fruit salt
1/4 tsp oil
1/4 tsp eno fruit salt
1/4 tsp oil

1/2 tsp mustard seeds
1/2 tsp sesame seeds
pinch of asafoetida

1 tbsp fresh coconut (optional)
1 tbsp chopped coriander leaves

1. Soak daals for 6 hours.
2. Drain and grind with ginger , turmeric powder & green chilies. Take out the batter in a container. Add yogurt and salt. Cover and keep aside for 2 hours.
3. Prepare a steamer for steaming. Grease a dhokla container.
4. Divide the batter into 2 parts. Just before pouring the batter, mix 1/4 tsp eno fruit salt and 1/4 tsp oil. Mix in a batter. Pour in the dhokla container. Steam till done.
5. Follow step 4, for the second batch of dhokla.
6. Let it cool down. Cut into squares or diamonds.
7. Heat oil in a small saucepan. Add seeds and asafoetida. Drizzle sizzling oil over the dhokla.
8. Garnish with cilantro and coconut, if using.

Note -
1. Never mix eno salt and oil in the entire batter. That's the reason we are dividing the batter in two batches and using separate eno-oil combo for each batch.
2. I did not use coconut for garnish.
