About Green Dhokla (Hara Bhara Dhokla)

Dhokla is one of the favorite snacks of my family. As now winter season is on and my kitchen garden is loaded with lots of spinach and fenugreek leaves so, I just thought to give our normal Dhokla a healthy twist by adding few greens to it like green peas, spinach, fenugreek and coriander leaves so that I can feed my kids with more healthy option....
