Khandvi Dokla My style

Dokla a snack prepared with Besan flour (Channa flour or chickpea flour) and butter milk. Besan flour is naturally higher in protein than wheat-based flour. Besan flour contain iron, magnesium and phosphorus. Besan flour does not contain gluten and it makes a good substiture for wheat flour in gluten free diets. We can have these Khandvi Dokla for breakfast, as snack or for dinner too. This perticular recipe does not contain much oil too. Fresh coconut gives a good aroma and adds to the taste. All age group will definitely enjoy eating Khandvi Dokla.
