Steamed yellow moong dal dhokla is a variation of the traditional dhoklas of Gujarat. Dhokla is a popular snack or breakfast food in Gujarat. Conventionally dhoklas are made from lentils like urad dal or chana dal or using the chickpea or besan flour.
Steamed yellow moong dal dhokla is healthy and prepared either for breakfast or for evening snack. Growing up in Mumbai, I got to taste these nutritious, protein-packed dishes from my Gujarati neighbours and friends.
The traditional dhoklas are made from channa dal or urad dal, or chickpea flour (besan).
This particular dhokla recipe I learnt from my mother who made this when she visited us in Trivandrum (years after I got married). This was so tasty that it was instant hit with everyone at home. My mother-in-law especially loved it and every time there was a potluck at her friends during prayer meetings, she would ask me to prepare this.
I have made this umpteen number of times (but only today I got to click pictures and hence sharing the recipes and pictures on the blog.
