My First Lentil Dhoka (I think)

Dhoka

At first glance, I thought that those little yellow things in the foreground were a sweet dessert. But when I asked the guys at Sanskruti to give me some of them, they pointed out that they were "starters" instead. I went for them anyway, only to find that they tasted like, well, cornbread. Except that they were made from lentils, which I found out later when I looked up their name, dhoka. They were a bit dry here though, so I ended up dipping them into my dal, which of course is also lentils.

its dhokla and it was dry because it was suppose to be accompanied with a sweet n sour tamarind chutney/sauce.
