A totally off-beat combination of ingredients is used to make this dhokla but it turns out to be absolutely awesome! Not just tasty, the Methi Palak Chawli Dhokla is also super healthy.

The protein from chawli and the antioxidant vitamins A and C from the greens come together to keep you hale and healthy. This snack helps to build healthy bones too.

A couple of everyday ingredients like ginger and green chilli help to enhance the taste of the dhokla. The fenugreek leaves too lend their pleasantly bitter taste and tempting aroma to this snack, making it a super duper hit.

It is important to serve these dhoklas immediately to relish the good texture. You can also try other healthy snacks like the Chana Dal and Cabbage Tikki and Nutritious Thalipeeth .

Loved this way of using chawli which is otherwise used to make subzis usually. Serving immediately is very important, so try for a Sunday morning breakfast when all the family members are in.
