Moong dal or 'mag na' dhoklas are a favourite breakfast recipe of gujaratis. Not only are these dhoklas very simple to prepare, they can also be made well in advance. To enhance its flavour and nutritive value, add some grated carrots or ground peas to the batter. Serve with low calorie green chutney.
