Its a traditional Gujrati snack item. They make Dhoklas mainly with gram dal or chana dal. But now a days in our busy lives Besan is the good replacement for gram/chana dal. It's a very easy and simple yet delicious tiffin for sudden guests ,kids etc. I have also used Besan to make these. It takes only 5 minutes to cook in microwave..
