  1. Combine the sprouted moong , spinach and green chillies and blend in a mixer using a little water to a smooth paste.
  2. Transfer the paste into a bowl, add the salt, besan along with ¼ cup water and mix well to make a batter of pouring consistency.
  3. Just before steaming, add the fruit salt and 2 tsp of water over the batter.
  4. When the bubbles form, mix gently.
  5. Pour the batter into a greased 175 mm. (7”) diameter thali and shake the thali clockwise to spread the batter in an even layer.
  6. Steam in a steamer for 10 to 12 minutes or till the dhoklas are cooked.
  7. Heat the oil in a small pan and add the sesame seeds, asafoetida, curry leaves and green chillies and sauté on a medium flame for few seconds.
  8. Pour this tempering over the dhoklas, cool slightly and cut into equal diamond shaped pieces.
  9. Serve immediately with green chutney.

Handy tip:

  1. Cool the dhoklas for just about 30 seconds, so that they can be easily cut into pieces.

What about adding water to the tempering? To make it softer, more light and fluffier.

Tarla Dalal    Besan helps in giving the binding so it is important to add it. You cannot edit this. Do try this recipe and share your valuable feedback with us.
