You can have it stand-alone, or you can serve it with rice or chapatis.
One of the oldest culinary treasures of India, Gujarati cuisine offers a wide variety of vegetarian dishes. While most of you would be familiar with popular Gujarati vegetarian delights like dhokla, khandvi, thepla, undhiyu, patra and fafda, there is a less famous dish that serves an ideal one-pot meal, especially in the nippy season that is upon us. We're talking about guvar dhokli. Similar to the usual green beans, guvar phali is a nutritional powerhouse that is brimming with protein and fibre. Guvar phali (or cluster beans) possess a sharp flavour, which complements well with the savoury dumplings made of whole wheat flour and besan (gram flour).
This recipe of guvar dhokli, by Mumbai-based YouTuber Alpa Modi, will help you ace the traditional treat at home. Alpa also uses one teaspoon of jaggery in this particular recipe to add some uniqueness; however, this step is completely optional. You can have it stand-alone, or you can serve it with rice or chapatis.
