Regular followers of the blog will know my love for dholkas! I had to make one with millets! My first choice was to make it with Ragi flour. Then the red jowar that I had got sat on the kitchen counter begging to be used!
I had some jowar flour that I used to prepare the Jowar Ladoo so used that to make this dhokla.
Since I was not sure how it would taste, I did not click step by step pictures.I was actually surprised to see how good it tasted! It was more filling than the regular dhokla. In fact, I actually skipped dinner after having this as a tea time snack!
It was liked by all and I want to make this again for them and also click proper pictures for this post.
