Green peas dhokla – microwave version-Tarla dalal recipe

I have never tried making dhoklas, though I wanted to make it from a very long time. When the microwave event was announced this month, the theme being steamed foods, I decided to try this dhoklas which I found in Tarla Dalal’s microwave cooking. The addition of green peas made it nutritious.It was easy to make requiring very less preparation time. Though it did not come out very fluffy, it was soft and tasted delicious and had authentic flavour.
