Dal Dhokli

A warm comforting dinner is Dal Dhokli for me. I just love to have this on a cold winter night, when you really crave to have a soupyyyyyyy drink.....It has all the flavours....spicy, tangy and slight sweetness.

Just a different way to have your roti, dal and sabji...for me its three in one.Going to be in our menu more often....

For Dhokli:

Whole Wheat Flour - 1 cup
Chickpea Flour(Besan) -1 Tbsp
Carom seeds(Ajwain)-1/4 tsp
Redchilli Powder - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder- 1/4 tsp
Salt - 1/2 tsp
oil-1 Tbsp
Water- 1/4 Cup
oil-1 Tbsp
 For Dal:
Toor Dal - 1/2 Cup
Raw Peanuts- 2 Tbsp
Water - 2cups

For Seasoning:
Mustard Seeds
Cumin Seeds
Dry Red Chillies
Carom Seeds(Ajwain)
Green Chillies
Curry Leaves
Curry Powder
Frozen Green Peas
Coriander leaves
Tamarind Pulp

In a pressure cooker put Toor dal , peanuts and water and pressure cook 4-5 that the dal is nicely cooked. Let the pressure subsidise on its own. Make a stiff dough by mixing everything under dhokli section. cover and keep aside for 10 minutes.
Now roll a thin circular disc and cut diamond shapes out of it .
Start boiling the dal again on the hob, add tamarind pulp and jaggery to it and start for the tempering.
Take another pan add ghee to it  add all the whole masalas, mustard , carom and cumin seeds.When it starts spluttering add the curry leaves, red chillies and asafoetida. Now add Green chillies and green peas and stir for 2 minutes . Now add curry powder and mix for a few seconds and add it to the cooking dal.
Now put the dhoklis into the dal and let it cook for 15 minutes. Garnish with Coriander leaves.
Tangy and Spicy Dal Dhokli is ready to be served.
