This combination of buckwheat, sanwa millet and curds makes an interesting recipe which is best enjoyed when served piping hot with a spoonful of low calorie green chutney. I've selected buckwheat as it abounds in fibre that will keep you satiated for a longer time and will prevent you from munching on calorie-laden snacks. Curds give a smooth creamy texture to the dhokla batter while enriching it with calcium which is necessary for healthy and strong bones. You can also have these dhoklas when you're on a religious fast as both these ingredients can be consumed during fasts.

Nice healthy recipe. The only thing i didnt like was that the dhoklas were slightly sticky. Maybe i need to adjust the sanwa millet.
