Dhoklas are a favourite gujarati snack. Dhoklas are usually made with ground and fermented pulses and are steamed. As they are steamed, they are healthier than most other snacks. The addition of spinach and fenugreek enriches this recipe with vitamin a (that aids in healthy vision) and iron (that is responsible for blood formation). These quick and easy to make dhoklas are best enjoyed as a breakfast dish or even for a late afternoon snack. They are quicker to make as instead of fermenting the batter overnight, i have used fruit salt for this purpose. Serve hot, with low calorie green chutney.
