Quinoa Stuffed Dal Dhokli - a simple, traditional Gujarati delicacy, prepared by giving it a twist by making it stuffed with quinoa and serving it with a side of brown rice and quinoa, which makes it a perfect meal for gym goers.
India's Digital Chef, and India Gate Foods, has yet another #IndiasDigitalHomeChef challenge#2 , where one needs to submit a recipe suitable for Gym goers, using Quinoa or Brown rice.
Pressure cook tuver dal adding 1/2 teaspoon ghee (oil for vegan version), salt, 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder, 2 medium sized tomatoes chopped, 4-5 dates, 2 pieces of dry kokum, 3 cups of water. Once the dal is cooked and cooled down, remove kokum, blend it. Heat 1/2 teaspoon oil, add 1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds, 1/4 teaspoon asafetida, 3-4 curry leaves, and dal. Add 2 tablespoons jaggery, 2-3 pieces kokum, 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder, 1 1/2 teaspoon red chili powder, 1/4 cup peanuts. Bring it to a boil. Add the dhokli prepared (recipe below). Let it boil on medium heat for half an hour, add water if needed. Once dal is boiled well and the dhokli cooked, turn off the heat. Prepare tadka by heating 1/2 teaspoon of oil/ghee, 1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds, 1-2 dried red chillies, 2-3 curry leaves. Once it splutters, turn off he heat and pour it over the dal dhokli. Garnish it with coriander and pomegranate seeds. Serve it with a side of quinoa and brown rice.
To prepare dhokli - Take 3/4 cup wheat flour, 2 tablespoons of gram flour, 2 tablespoons yogurt, 1/2 teaspoon each of grated ginger, turmeric powder, red chili powder, coriander leaves, salt to taste. Mix well and knead it into a semi-soft dough using water. I also made a gluten-free version of dhokli by using amaranth flour replacing gram flour with 1/4 boiled, grated potato. Roll the dhokli into into a thin disk, repeat, dust flour on one of the rolled roti and put another one on top. Cut into squares. Stuff cooked quinoa in between these squares, gently seal it with the back of the fork. Heat a pan, put a few drops of oil and cook the dhoklis for a few minutes on each side, before putting it into the boiling dal.
