Methi Dhokli

This sumptuous one-dish meal needs no introduction to those familiar with traditional Gujrati cuisine.

I have modified the original recipe into a healthier one so that these dhoklis can be dieter’s as well as a diabetic’s delight! Transform these flat squares of gehu atta into nutrition blocks by adding fragrant methi and tuck in with crispy papads on the side!


Prep Time: 20 min         Cooking Time: 15 min           Serves: 4 people


For the dhokli
1 1/2 tea cup wheat flour
2 tsp chilli powder
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
Salt to taste
Flour for rolling and sprinkling

For the gravy
3 tea cup fresh fenugreek  (methi) leaves
4 tbsp oil
21/2 tsp chilli powder
11/2 tsp coriander (dhaniya)  powder
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
Salt to taste


  1. Mix all the ingredients for the dhokli and make a soft dough with water
  2. Divide it into 8 to 10 equal part
  3. Roll it with the help of flour (sprinkle some flour between two portions so that they don’t stick together)
  4. Keep aside
  5. Heat the oil, add fenugreek and coriander leaves and fry for few minutes
  6. Add other ingredient for the gravy and fry it for some time
  7. Add six tea cups of water
  8. Once the water boils make diamond-shaped pieces of the dhokli and add it to the water
    (put the pieces one by one and stir it otherwise it will stick to each other. Ensure that the water has boiled else the pieces will stick to each other)
  9. Let the preparation cook for 5 to 7 minute after all the pieces have been added to the water

Note: You can customize the use of oil on the basis of your diet requirement
