Dhokla is a specialty snack of Gujarat; but now easily available in all parts of India. Dhokla is a savory steamed light, airy and spongy snack similar to a cake. It is made with besan which is the main ingredient along with some baking powder, which plays an important role in puffing up the dhokla. It is then steamed and then tossed is a mustard seeds tadka. Well this was the traditional description, in today’s recipe we have gone a step further and given it a twist. We have marinated the steamed dhokla into a delicious spicy yougurt base tandoori masala, and then tossed it in a pan. Yummy and super easy to make. Let’s get started!
Deepawali or Diwali, the brightest festival of the year is here and this time around, we’ve curated two recipes for you to stir up, serve & impress your guests!
The best part? Both of these recipes are damn easy to make and are as scrumptious to the palate.. Why delay? Let’s get started.
Puri Chaat, a distance cousin of Raj Kachori. Easier to make, easier to impress your guests. I mean literally who can say no to a chaat. I can’t. Ofcourse, I’m a chatora. 😛
A crisp puri with bubbling hot vatana, ice cold sweet yogurt, tangy tamarind chutney, zingy coriander chutney, spices, sev, onions is this.
That’s easy ain’t it? Make it & Enjoy 🙂
This recipe was inspired by my relative Manisha Bhabhi, her mom makes a slight different version of this. She calls it Bhar ke Puri and she recently started blogging at www.foodnspoons.com. She shared her mom’s recipe for Bhar ke Puri with me years back, and since then I’ve been making it every now and then with different variations and it comes out great all the time 🙂 Check out her version here.
That’s all for today, one more diwali special recipe to come very soon! 🙂
