How to Make Toor Dal Dhokli

  • Pressure cook dal with 2 cups of water.
  • Mix the wheat flour with required masalas and oil and make semi soft dough, adding sufficient water
  • Churn the dal and add water to make it thin
  • Add in salt, ginger, chilli paste, jaggery, kokum, chopped coriander leaves, peanuts and cashew nuts
  • Boil for 10 mins
  • For Tempering:
  • Heat the ghee; add the chopped chillies, mustard seeds, cumin seeds and fenugreek seeds
  • When they splutter add cloves, cinnamon, asafoetida and curry leaves
  • Pour this tempering into the boiled dal and keep aside
  • Roll out thin rotis into the already prepared dough
  • Cut the chapatti into long strips and then cut them diagonally to make 4 pieces out of each strip, called dhoklis.
  • If the dhoklis are kept in the dal for too long they will form lumps, so add these dhoklis into the dal one by one just 10 mins before serving
  • Keep it to boil on a slow fire.
  • Stir at regular interval, so that the dhoklis do not stick to the bottom of the vessel on a slow fire for about 5-7 mins
  • Garnish with chopped coriander leaves
