DAL DHOKLI FOR SWC GUJARAT

dal dhokali,..when i was searching for gujarati recipes for SWC GUJARAT,..i saw this recipe for the first time...never heard of,..i clicked on the recipe to see how it is cooked,..back at my home i never used to eat it whenever it was prepared..reason..being thick dal,..with roti folded and pressure cooked...and simple tadka of ghee and cumin,..we remember the dish as DAL KI DULHIN,..EASY RECIPE to prepare without any fuss,..but this recipe though looked same the preparation was quiet different...anyway i had to prepare something gujarati for SWC GUJARAT...and this recipe seemed new to me,,,so thought of trying
...hubby liked it,son liked it and even i liked it,..enjoyed preparing too,..when i was preparing i was thinking...what if it doesnt turn out good,...was really scared///and was feeling bad for my hubby too,..he has to be tester everyday,..but he liked it so much,..that the whole of dhokali was over the same day...felt happy...something like test mission...happy is the word which makes lots of difference...if hubby likes the new dish whatever i prepare i feel like the mission is accomplished,..i bet every cook feels the same way...i guess thats a lotz for this post ,..the recipe for daldhokali goes here

Looks awesome! Hard to believe it is only your first time making it!
What we do at home is pressure cook extra dal to use the next day for the dal dhokli, that way all you have to worry about is the dhokli part :)
