SANDWICH DHOKLA

Khaman dhokla is a traditional Gujarati dish and my family’s favourite. I make it quite often at home as it’s a healthy breakfast dish and can be made in a jiffy. For a long time, it has been in my mind to make sandwich dhokla. Finally, I made it few days back for breakfast. I had made paneer sandwich dhokla. It was easy to make, just takes little more time than the regular dhokla and indeed came out really well. The dhokla sandwich was soft and fluffy and the rich, soft , creamy paneer in between the layers made the bite more delicious. My family really loved it and I hope you all would like it too:)
