Who does not love Dhokla. There is the authentic way of making them, then there is 7 min, 5 min and even 3 min instant dhokla recipe. This is NOT a 1 min dholka recipe prepared using some instant mix :P, but it is different… how cliche!!.
So R2 for some reason does not like Corn kernels.I have tried lots of ways to feed him corn but no he will not eat if he sees corn in it.So I did what a Mom has to do and i am sure you must have heard the Indian saying “Ghee seedhi ungli se na nikle, to ungli tedi karni padti hai” .. Translating that in to English would mean “Where straightforwardness does not have a chance of working, crookedness flourishes”.
Made these dhokla with Corn kernel and guess what he loved it and even asked me if I can give them in his lunch box for snack time….HURRY!!! mission accomplished :)
And R1 had his own request he wanted sandwich dhokla stuffed with paneer an green chutney.
looks like lots of steps but believe me they are quick and easy and yummy!!
