Chola Dal is a valuable addition to your kitchen pantry, as it is rich in nutrients and can be used to make healthy snacks like this.

Here, we have combined chola dal with greens like spinach, fenugreek leaves and dill to make quick, easy and super-tasty dhoklas.

Apart from the characteristic flavours lent by fenugreek and dill, we have also used taste-givers like ginger, green chillies and asafoetida to boost the flavour further.

Go all out on the garnish, as coriander really boosts the aroma and taste of this dish. Being rich in fibre, the Chola Dal Dhokla is apt for a diabetic diet. It can be served at tea-time, or even packed and carried to work.
