My recent trip to Gujarat was insanely fun, colourful & beautiful, filled with everlasting memories. I can never forget the super yummy Gujarati & Maharashtrian snacks I had at their famous @swatisnacks outlet in Ahmedabad. Curated to perfection, each dish was better than the other! So, the next week starting from today is going to be all about recreating those Yummy Gujarati farsans/meals! All items will be steamed/baked & vegan. This dish is yummy & wholesome.

3. Now add cooked peanuts, a small piece of jaggery, ¾ tsp salt and 1 tsp lemon juice.
4. For the dhokli combine all ingredients in that list and make diamond shapes(thin) like kaju katli
5. Once the daal comes to a boil, drop in dhokli pieces & mix well.
