Dhoklis get much more tastier when radish is added to the whole wheat flour and besan dough along with the spice powders. Just make sure you squeeze the juice out of the grated radish before adding it to the dough, so that it does not get soggy. This Mooli Dhokli recipe is a double radish treat, because it uses both the vegetable and the greens. While the radish is used in the dhokli, the greens are chopped and added to the subzi along with ginger-chilli paste to form an aromatic and delicious gravy to hold the dhoklis.

We Gujaratis always make the normal and common Fansi Dhokli recipe, this recipe using radish leaves was very different, I really enjoyed it.
