For something a little bit different, wholly nutritious, and filling, check out this recipe for almond meal dhokla.
Dhokla is another delicious Indian dish that can be eaten as any type of meal, at any type of day. It originates in the province of Gujarat, which is a vegetarian province. Traditionally it is made with chickpeas and is a fermented dish. This variation made with nutty almond meal is gluten free, low carb, vegan, and keto friendly, so it easily fits with all dietary lifestyles. Since this is made solely with almonds, you’re getting all their amazing gut benefits in one of the tastiest ways possible.
While it’s popular for breakfast, main meals, and a snack, it can also be sweetened up with a squeeze of lemon and some non-dairy yogurt. You can also try playing around with the recipe for different thicknesses; with the right tweaks, this would make a delicious sandwich bread.
- ¼ cup almond meal
- 1 tsp non-dairy yogurt
- Pinch of salt
- Drizzle of extra virgin olive oil
- ¼ tsp fruit salt (Eno) available at Asian supermarkets & good supermarkets
- Mix all the ingredients together except the water. Once your mix has reached a smooth consistency, start to slowly pour in water until a thick, smooth batter has formed.
- Pour the batter into a wide, flat, microwave safe dish and microwave on high for 2 minutes.
- Once your dhokla has cooled, remove from the dish and cut into cubes.
- You can eat these as they are, or for a little more oomph, add any of these spices on top: black mustard seeds, sesame seeds, and red chili powder. You can also add a little pot of Tadka (spiced oil) to dip them in.
