Rajasthani Dal Dhokli

Finally yesterday,we are finished our 8days of occasional foods for this long month of blogging marathon, here starts from today onwards again, the second week of blogging marathon with traditional dishes as theme for this week.Seriously for the traditional week, i want to make a different cuisine and my choice went immediately to North Indian cuisines. Been born and brought up in South India, my love for North Indian foods pulled me to chose one of the fabulous cuisine, the famous Rajasthani cuisine. I cooked earlier from this cuisine,eventhough its quite not a familiar cuisine for me. Manjula of Desi Fiesta, one of my buddy pulled me to cook her native state cuisine, if she didnt motivated me dunno whether i would have chosed this cuisine, thanks Manjula seriously i loved cooking some famous rajasthani dishes and i enjoyed it thoroughly.

For the first day of this second week of blogging marathon, am posting this wonderful one pot meal called Dal Dhokli, this dish suits prefectly for anytime of the day, this is the first time i tried my hands in making dhoklis at home.This dal dhoklis goes for a spiced wheat flour dumplings, this dumplings are later cooked in dal, this dish tastes fabulous.If you want to make a healthy one pot meal, dont forget to give a try to this satisfying dal dhoklis.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#27.Stay tuned for more Rajasthani traditional dishes.


For dhoklis:
1cup Wheat flour
1tsp Red chilly powder
Salt
1/2tsp Cumin seeds
1/2tsp  Garam masala powder
1tsp Ghee
Water

Take the wheat flour, red chilly powder, garam masala powder, salt,cumin seeds, add the ghee and water,knead everything as a smooth dough.

Make small balls from the dough,press those balls with your palm like a thick disc.

Make a center to the pressed wheat dough disc and keep aside,finish the remaining dough in the same way.

Keep aside the rolled dhoklis and cover it.

For Dal:
1/2cup Toor dal
1/2cup Moongdal
1tbsp Ghee
1/2tsp Mustard seeds
1/4tsp Cumin seeds
1/2tsp Garam masala
1no Onion (chopped)
1no Tomato (chopped)
1/2tsp Red chilly powder
1/2tsp Turmeric powder
Salt
Coriander leaves (chopped)

Wash and soak the dals together for 2 hours.

Drain the water and pressure cook the dals together with 4cups of water with turmeric powder and salt.

Keep aside until the dals gets cooked.

Take a heavy bottomed pan, heat the ghee,let crack the mustard seeds,cumin seeds.

Add the chopped onions,chopped tomatoes and saute for few minutes.

Now add the cooked dal, garam masala powder, red chilly powder,cook everything in simmer..

Add now the already prepared dhoklis to the cooking dal, cook for simmer for atleast 15-20minutes.

Finally add the coriander leaves and put off the stove.

I cooked my dal dhoklis in vessel itself,if you want to finish the cooking process easily,you can cook them in pressure cooker for a whistle.

Enjoy warm with more coriander leaves.
