Millet (kuthiraivali) dhokla recipe – Easy snack recipe

        If you are a regular reader here, I have mentioned before that I make use of millet once or twice a week.Thanks to blogging that I have actually come to know about this important healthy ingredient. I mostly make upma or use instead of rice in a rice variety. But seeing other blogs , I also decided to be more creative with this ingredient. I have been making alot of dhokla varieties off late and so decided to make the same with millet too. We all loved it. Its not as spongy as the regular dhokla. Its also a bit bland, so be sure to make it slightly spicy . Also make sure to serve with spicy chutney.

We all enjoyed it for dinner one day. Its quite filling too.

Other dhokla varieties-

Rava dhokla

Sandwich dhokla.

Refer different kind of idli recipes here which is also healthy steamed food like dhokla.
