Hot and fluffy savoury besan cake with sweet red chutney and boiled mirchi by the side - that's a humble plate of dhokla for you! Dhokla holds an indispensable position in Gujarati cuisine. No discussion about Gujarati food is complete without a special mention of dhokla. It is, in fact, one such snack item that defines Gujarati cuisine for many people across the globe. Unlike most of the Indian snacks (that are deep-fried), this dish is steamed and baked - making dhokla a healthy food option for all.
