Gujarati Palak Dhokla




Palak dhokla is very healthy and nutritious meal for everyone.. because its made by gram flour, yogurt and spinach puree. Palak dhokla are called steamed spinach lentil cakes in english which served with green chutney or meethi chutney as you like. Steaming process makes food more healthy and delicious compare to frying or deep frying. I always prefer steamed food because its tasty as well as healthy also.

To make this dhokla at home, we need spinach puree which combines with besan or gram flour, rava aka semolina and yogurt. After steam process, we add some tadka of mustard seeds, sesame seeds and green chilies. This watery tadka keeps dhokla moist and makes tastier and fluffy.







Green color dhokla attracts the kids and even you can give them in tiffin also. So here is the recipe, how to make palak dhokla or steamed spinach lentil cakes at home.
