Pucca traditional and perfect to the core, the Moong Dal Dhokla represents everything that dhoklas stand for – sumptuous, tasty and aromatic!
A wholesome batter of soaked and ground moong dal is complemented by ingredients like besan, curds and fruit salt to get the ideal texture and flavour. Topped off by an aromatic tempering, the Moong Dal Dhokla becomes a tongue-tickling snack, when matched with peppy green chutney.
This traditional Gujarati Farsans can be enjoyed as a snack for Breakfast , High Tea Party or as an acompaniment to the main course.
