Chori-Dhokli |  A Gujarati Delicacy (Long Bean Curry with dumpling)




One famous dish made in almost all Gujarati family homes ….is Dhokli. It’s a very comforting and filling dish that can be made in many different versions. The actual “Dhokli” which is made up of atta (flour), flavored with seasoning, kneaded in a dough and formed in a small round disc size shape. These “Dhokli’s” can be added into many different Vegetables: Guwar (cluster beans), Papri, French Beans (Fansi) and Dals (Lentils).
