green peas dhokla are easy and delicious dhoklas that are made nutritious by the addition of green peas, which are full of fibre and also impart a nice green colour.
The batter of matar dhokla is made with the besan, green peas purée, salt, powdered sugar, ginger- green chilli paste, citric acid-water mixture and water. It is poured into a greased thali and steamed in a steamer till done. Finally, a tempering of mustard seeds, green chillies and asafoetida in oil is poured over the dhokla. Garnishing the green dhokla with coriander and coconut gives a truly traditional touch.
