An intriguing thing common in all Gujarati snacks is that even though they are low on spices, they manage to leave a strong impression on our palate. Just like us, if Neena Gupta's home-cooked Khandvi has fueled your cravings, we have it covered. Here are the recipes of not one but five Gujarati snacks which you can try:
Dhokla has a humongous fan base. An ideal dhokla is soft, spongy and melts in your mouth in a fraction of seconds. Check out the recipe to make some steamed dhoklas.
