Besan Dhokla – My Favorite Breakfast

Besan Dhokla is one my favorite breakfast. Dhokla is a Gujarati recipe made using besan, baking soda or Eno, and tempered with curry leaves. This vegetarian snack is an ideal dish for occasions like kitty parties, family get together or picnic. It is protein-rich, healthy and very easy to make with very few ingredients.
