In the meantime, make balls from the kneaded flour for dhokli.
Take a ball, flatten it and dust it with flour. Roll it into a thin big circle like roti.
Take the roti to a plate and cut it into squares or diamond. The dhokli are ready. Dust them with flour and keep in a plate so that do not stick with each other. Similarly, make 7 more rotis and cut dhokli out of it.
Once the water start to boil, add the prepared dhokli one by one.

The dhokli is ready to serve.
Garnish with coriander and serve it hot as a single dish or serve with bhakri, thepla or rice. (tip: I knead extra dhokli lot and make thepla from it and serve it along with prepared dhokli).
