Mooli dhokli is a traditional Indian dish that combines the earthy flavors of radish (mooli) with a savory wheat flour dumpling (dhokli) in a flavorful and aromatic curry. This dish is popular in parts of India, particularly in the state of Gujarat.

Dhoklis in Mooli dhokli recipe get much tastier when radish is added to the whole wheat flour and besan dough along with the spice powders. Just make sure you squeeze the juice out of the grated radish before adding it to the dough, so that it does not get soggy.

To make dhokli , squeeze and remove excess water from the radish. In a bowl add the mooli, besan, whole wheat flour, dhania, chilli powder, haldi, hing, ajwain, oil,  salt along with approx. 1 tbsp of water  and knead into a soft dough. Divide the dough into 16 equal portions, grease your palms with little oil and flatten each portion. Keep aside.

To make mooli dhokli, heat the oil in a deep non-stick pan and add the cumin seeds.When the seeds crackle, add the radish greens and sauté on a medium flame for 1 to 2 minutes. Add the ginger-green chilli paste, turmeric powder, coriander powder, sugar, oil, salt and 1½ cups of water, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 2 minutes, while stirring occasionally. Add the dhoklis and cook on a medium flame for 3 to 4 minutes, while stirring occasionally. Serve mooli dhokli immediately with chapatis.

Pro tips for Mooli dhokli . 1. In a bowl put  grated radish (mooli) squeeze and remove excess water from the radish.  Grated radish adds moisture to the dhokli dough, preventing it from becoming dry and hard. This results in softer and more enjoyable dumplings. 2. Add besan (bengal gram flour). Besan flour readily absorbs spices, allowing them to release their full flavor into the dhokli dough. Besan helps keep the dhokli soft and slightly elastic even after cooking. This prevents them from becoming dry or hard, making them more enjoyable to chew. Besan is high in Folate or folic acid, which is important for rapid growth and multiplication of red blood cells and white blood cells (WBC) in the bone marrow. 3. Add shredded radish leaves (mooli ke patte). Radish leaves have a unique peppery and slightly bitter taste that adds a pleasant contrast to the blander flavor of the dhokli dough made with wheat flour and grated radish. The vitamin A and vitamin C in radish leaves work towards building the immune cells – WBC (white blood cells).
