Loaded with greens, this quick and easy steamed dal dhokla gives you a burst of nutrients – fibre, vitamin A and proteins .

We have made use of chola dal, which is hardly used in everyday cooking despite being so healthy. Together with greens like spinach, fenugreek leaves and dill, it makes a very, very tasty snack.

Be generous with the garnish of coriander leaves as it gives the dhokla a flavourful and aromatic boost. The Chola Dal Dhokla can also be packed and carried to work, to avoid snacking on calorie-laden stuff.
