Palak Dhokla

Khaman dhokla is quite a famous Gujarati dish,this dhokla is prepared usually with gram flour and can be eaten for breakfast,as main dish , as side dish and also as snacks. I love this yummy spongy dhoklas with green chutney,usually i make this dhokla with gram flour,curd along with few spices. But this time for a change, as a healthy treat i went for making dhoklas with spinach puree. This palak dhokla came out extremely delicious, very light with wonderful spongy texture, obviously its a low caloric steamed food can be enjoyed anytime of the day.I served this healthy green dhoklas for our breakfast with spicy chutney, we simply enjoyed it thoroughly.

This week its our fourth week of blogging marathon, this week i choosed low fat breakfast as theme,obviously i'll be posting for the next two days healthy and delicious low fat breakfast.This healthy palak dhokla goes for low fat yoghurt and a teaspoon of oil for tempering, an excellent light food to kick start a day.


1cup Gram flour /Besan
1/2cup Low fat curd
1/2cup Spinach puree
1/2tsp Green chilly paste
1/2tsp Sugar
1tbsp Lemon juice
Salt
1tsp Eno fruit salt
1tsp Oil
1/2tsp Mustard seeds
1tsp Sesame seeds
Coriander leaves (chopped)

Mix the spinach puree,curd,chilly paste,sugar,lemon juice,salt together in a bowl.

Now add the gram flour and whisk everything well, keep aside for an hour.

Pour this batter in a greased vessel and place gently into the pressure cooker.Close the cooker and cook in high flame..

Steam cook this batter until the steam comes and put the flame in simmer, cook again for 10minutes.

Remove the lid and insert a toothpick to check whether they get cooked well.

Meanwhile heat a pan with oil, fry the sesame seeds, mustard seeds and pour over the cooked dhoklas.

Cut them as cubes and serve along with chopped coriander leaves..

Enjoy this dhoklas warm with spicy green chutney.
