There are various ways to prepare Dal Dhokli like Gujarati Dal Dhokli and Rajasthani Dal Dhokli. Gujarati Dal Dhokli is sweet one and Rajasthani Dal Dhokli is a spicy one. It is a traditional recipe in which savory dumplings made of wheat flour and gram flour simmered in two different types of dal. It is a complete meal in itself. It is my favorite.
