Hot Paneer Sandwich Dhokla Recipe

Cottage cheese (paneer) is a perennial favourite of Indians everywhere. It always has that cheesy wonderful flavour, whether it is in the form of curry or filling. In this recipe, paneer has been used as filling between dhokla sandwiches. Dhokla is a popular Gujarati dish made from fermented rice batter, semolina (suji) or gram flour (besan). It is very similar to Khaman, another Gujarati dish. Besan is considered to be a very healthy ingredient. It is gluten-free, and helps control diabetes and lowers cholesterol levels. In this recipe, besan and suji have been used to prepare the batter. Eno has been added as it contains baking soda and helps in rising. Turmeric (haldi) is responsible for the yellow colour of dhokla. Spices can be added according to taste. The secret to preparing excellent dhokla lies in its steaming process. So after steaming them, they should be left to be cooled for some time. As many Gujarati dishes are incomplete without a sweet element, dhokla is not different. A “Sweet & Tangy” syrup containing sugar (cheeni), salt (namak), water and citric acid (neembu ka phool) is used in this recipe to drench the dhoklas. The stuffing consists of paneer and green chutney. This green chutney can be prepared with coriander (dhaniya) or mint (pudina). The final step is the drizzling of the tempering (baghaar), consisting of mustard seeds, chillies and curry leaves. These mouth-watering hot paneer sandwich dhoklas can be served as breakfast, evening snack or even as an appetizer. They never fail to shine.
