A characteristic ingredient of Gujarati and Rajasthani cuisine, dhoklis made of besan add body to a subzi while also enhancing its taste. The musky aroma and nutty mouth-feel of these ajwain-flavoured dhoklis are a pleasure to the palate. In Fansi Dhokli, dhoklis made of whole wheat flour and besan are combined with French beans, perked up with spice powders and thickened with besan again, creating a mouth-watering delicacy that is rich in fibre, folic acid and vitamin A.
