    Method
  1. Combine the sprouted moong , spinach and green chillies and blend in a mixer using a little water to a smooth paste.
  2. Transfer the paste into a bowl, add the salt, besan along with ¼ cup water and mix well to make a batter of pouring consistency.
  3. Just before steaming, add the fruit salt and 2 tsp of water over the batter.
  4. When the bubbles form, mix gently.
  5. Pour the batter into a greased 175 mm. (7”) diameter thali and shake the thali clockwise to spread the batter in an even layer.
  6. Steam in a steamer for 10 to 12 minutes or till the dhoklas are cooked.
  7. Heat the oil in a small pan and add the sesame seeds, asafoetida, curry leaves and green chillies and sauté on a medium flame for few seconds.
  8. Pour this tempering over the dhoklas, cool slightly and cut into equal diamond shaped pieces.
  9. Serve immediately with green chutney.

Handy tip:

    Handy tip:

   Besan helps in giving the binding so it is important to add it. You cannot edit this. Do try this recipe and share your valuable feedback with us.
