Cow peas has very distinct characteristics, right from its mealy texture to its pleasantly nutty flavour. You will find these characteristics playing out very favourably in this interesting snack. These dhoklas, made of split cow peas, spinach and fenugreek leaves have a lingering flavour with the mild bitterness of methi, which is so enjoyable. The addition of curds for sourness and an aromatic tempering as the final touch are standard steps in the preparation of any Dhokla , which work their magic here too. The Hariyali Chola Dal Dhokla is a really tasty snack, with three pieces amounting to just around 100 calories. What a ‘light’ way to appease your hunger!
