How does showing patriotism and love for our country a tad-bit differently on this Republic day sound? While hoisting the Indian tricolour flag and watching the parade with your friends and family is always delightful, having something equally colourful and healthy to eat is like cherry on the top.
What you’ll need:
|Rice – 100 gms for 4 cups of idli batter|
Urad Dal – 50 gms
Semolina – 50 gms
Palak/ coriander puree – 1 cup
Cooking oil – 2 tsp
Ginger/turmeric paste – 1 tsp
Green chilli paste – 2-3
Chilli powder – 1/2 tsp
Freshly chopped Coriander leaves
Gingelly seeds (white til)
- Pour the batter in a big bowl, add salt and divide into 3 equal parts. Leave aside 1 part for the white colour of your dhokla.
- For the orange batter, mix turmeric and chilli powder in the second part.
- For the green batter, mix palak puree, ginger paste, coriander paste, green chilli paste and a pinch of salt in the remaining portion of the batter and stir well.
- Now, take a big vessel with the right amount of water in it and keep it on high flame.
- Transfer the green batter in a greased steel plate and steam it over the vessel of water.
- When done, pour the white batter and steam it. And lastly, add the third layer and steam it as well.
- After 15 minutes remove the dhokla from the stove and cut it into any shape you like once it’s cool.
- To make it even more delicious, take a small saucepan, put some oil it in and add any tempering seasoning ingredients of your choice.
- Pour the seasoning over your Republic Day special dhokla and garnish them with chopped coriander and gingelly seeds (white til). Voila!
