Sandwich dhokla

Dhokla is slowly and steadily making its way into the most popular dishes on menu tonight, just because it is easy, takes very little time and is a good way to use up curd. I have a bad throat since a few days, but i set curd almost every night!
I tried sandwich dhokla and it was a different taste altogether. I served it with big green chilli veggie. The stuffing in the dhokla can be varied. I used potato and peas stuffing and sattu stuffing. Both tasted very good :)

My recipe-

My recipe for dhoklas is from here, with some alterations-
1 cup sour curd
1 cup water
5 tbsp rice flour
3 tbsp gram flour / besan
1 tsp eno/ fruit salt / baking soda
salt to taste
2 tsps chopped coriander / dhania

Mix these together and keep aside for 10 mins.

For the potato and peas stuffing-
1 boiled potato - mashed
1 cup peas- boiled and roughly mashed
oil for cooking
cumin / mustard seeds for tempering
1 tsp each of turmeric and coriander powder
1/4 cup water

Heat oil in a wok. Add the tempering, add the boiled veggies and fry for a bit. Add the dry spices and cook till done. Add water and cook to get a paste like consistency. Remove from fire.

For the sattu stuffing-
Use my recipe from here

For sandwich dhokla-
Pour half the batter in a greased dish, spread the stuffing over it by spoonfuls and then pour the remaining batter over it. Microwave for 8 mins on full power (check with a knife, if it comes out clean, it is done) Let cool. Cut into squares.

You can add tempering if you have patience or eat otherwise (which is what we did)

I added the tempering to the sattu filling wala dhokla.
1tbsp mustard oil
2 tsp mustard seeds
split green chillies (I didn't have any)

Heat the mustard oil in a kadahi / wok. Add mustad seeds and let them splutter, add green chillies and the dhokla pieces, mix well.

Serve hot with chutney / ketchup.

Sending to Fast food not fat food, cos it is fast, esp with the sattu stuffing! and it is not fat, and is doubly delish!
