Masoor dal - 1 cup
Wheat flour -1 cup
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Cumin seeds -1/2 tsp
Garlic clove- 5 to 6
Oil - 2 tbsp
Water -3 cup
2 Table spoon chopped coriander leaves for garnishing

Rinse the masoor dal in running water. Add salt, turmeric powder and water in the masoor dal and place the dal in the cooker.
       We  prepare a dough for dhokli. We mix cumin seeds, salt and one tsp oil in the wheat flour with the help of water to make a little stiff but smooth dough. Cover the dough and keep aside for 15 to 20 minutes. Divide the dough into 10 to 12 equal size balls. Now take one ball and give it a shape like patties or star shape. These pieces are known as 'dhokli'.
       Add all the star shape pieces into dal in the cooker. Close the lid  and pressure. Cook it over medium flame for one whistle and once the dal dhokli gets ready switch off the gas.
         Heat oil in a pan in a medium flame. Add cumin seeds and garlic cloves to crackle and mix in the dal dhokli.
      Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot in a deep serving bowl.
