Dal Dhokli is traditional delight Gujarati food. Dal dhokli is comfort, delicious, healthy recipe. Major Gujarati household made during holidays and for many family, it is sunday delight. Dal Dhokli is leftover dal recipes also. I also prefer to made dal dhokli during rainy season, it’s feel like bowl of goodness. Groundnuts add more delicious taste in Dal Dhokli.

I prefer to serve with cooked rice, onion and lemon. These make perfect bowl of meal. Must try it…
