Dal Dhokli

This is a one pot meal and is a west indian dish. The soft dhokli in dal, gives a yummy taste with lot of flavours in it. Try it once and you will love it for sure.

½ cup Toor Dal (washed and soaked for 30 minutes)
2 tbsp Raw Peanuts
2 cups Water
Salt to taste
¼ tsp Turmeric powder
For Dhokli
1 cup Whole wheat flour
1 tbsp Besan flour
¼ tsp Ajwain
¼ tsp Turmeric powder
Salt to taste
½ tsp Red chilli powder
1 tbsp Oil
Water as required
For Seasoning
1 tbsp Oil
1 tsp Ghee
1 tsp Mustard seeds
1/8 tsp Methi seeds
½ tsp Cumin seed/Jeera
1 pinch Asafoetida
1 tsp Ginger (grated)
1 tsp Green chilli (finely chopped)
10 Curry leaves
¼ tsp Turmeric powder

For Garnishing
1 tbsp Lemon juice
1 Onion (medium, finely chopped)
2 tbsp Coriander leaves (finely chopped)


  • Put toor dal, raw peanuts, water,  salt and turmeric powder in the pressure cooker and place it on high flame. Pressure cook till one whistle and then reduce to low flame till 4 whistles. Once done, take off from heat and when the steam completely escapes from the cooker, take off the lid. Transfer the dal into a bowl and whisk it using a whisker. Keep this aside.
  • For making dhokli, take a large bowl and add whole wheat flour, besan, salt, turmeric powder, red chilli powder, ajwain and oil. Mix well and add water little by little to make a stiff dough. Spread little oil on top of the dough, cover and keep this aside.
  • Heat oil and ghee in a kadai on medium flame. Add mustard seeds, methi seeds, jeera, ginger, green chilli, asafoetida, curry leaves and turmeric powder. When it splutters, add the cooked dal mixture into it. Keep it on high flame and add more water as required because this dish is very thin in consistency. Adjust salt if needed. Reduce the flame, when it starts to boil. Let it boil for 5 minutes.
  • In the meantime, take small portions of the dhokli dough and roll it thin just like we roll for chapathi. Cut it into diamond shapes using a knife. Do the same procedure to the remaining dough. Put the pieces one by one into the boiling dal. Mix gently and let it cook till the dhoklis are done or for 10 minutes.
  • Serve it hot by adding onion, coriander leaves and juice of lemon.

* I usually take the quantity of the ingredients as per my taste. So you can always adjust the spices as per your taste*
