Dal Dhokli / Spicy Wheat Flour Sheets In Lentil Curry

Dhokli is a very comforting food and is relished by us all in our house. My son use to call it pasta when he was young. When you have some left different beans or dal you can make a new dish from it in the form of dhokli. You can add peanuts, fresh spinach of methi leaves in the dhokli for variation.

I had used bhakri flour or coarse wheat flour to make the dhokli. The dhokli remains firm when we use bhakri flour and do not break. You can however make the dhokli with the regular wheat flour but keep in mind not to overcook it.

The flour is to be kneaded to a semi stiff consistency to make dhokli.

Apply oil over the rolled dhokli to prevent them from sticking.

Always put the dhokli in batches in the boiling water so that they do not stick with each other and cook well.

So friends do make this irresistible guar ma dhokli for your loved ones and share your valuable feedback with me.

Khao dilse, khilao dilse aur banao dilse…

For Dhokli

  • In a big mixing bowl, add bhakri flour (ghau no jado lot), wheat flour, oil, asafoetida, turmeric powder, red chili powder, carom seeds, salt. ( My father in law is allergic to carom seeds and hence I have not added it in the dough and had used cumin seed powder. But addition of carom seeds imparts a nice flavor to the dhoki and also aids digestion).

  • Put the pressed luva on a rolling board and roll to a size of coin. (Traditionally, the ladies of the house use to sit and press the luva with their fingers and make small coin size dhokli. Since it was pressed with fingers it was known as daabeli dhokli and was time consuming). Now a days due to lack of time always, It is easy to roll the dhokli with a help or rolling pin as shown.
