Spinach Fenugreek Bhaji Dhokla

About the Recipe

Dhokla is a savoury steamed cake from the Gujarat region. It is made from Bengal gram and a few spices. Eno is added in dhokla to get a soft and spongy texture. Additionally, a tempering is added on the top and is served with chutney. I have added spinch and fenugreek leaves to give extra flavor and nutrition. Use Oddy Ecobake cooking paper circles to steam the dhoklas to perfection.
