Recipe of dhokhre / Besan dhokra with gravy

Dhokre is one of the most famous dish amongst  memon community , ( muslim -community ) , I have grown up seeing aunts cooking this extra ordinary gravy, do not get confused as the dokhre that is served with fish is totally different , ( one of the most famous delicacy again, which i will update on my blog very soon ) this is gram flour dhokhre with curry ,which I simply love . Dhokre ka salan ( curry ) is simply outstanding , and made of gram flour, mixed with spices and allowed to set, on the other hand gravy is made and these dhokre's are dipped in the gravy which in turn gives an extra flavorful aromatic taste to this dish.

I still remember when I was in my teens, my aunt use to prepare this gravy  and I use to have those pieces of besan ( dhokre) which were kept to set before dipping in the gravy.... oh..! it was have that before hand , though I am having it since childhood , as i can recollect my memories....but still I feel the taste is fresh , flavourful and palata…

Recipe Of Onion Raita / Emli Gud pyaaz kachumbar

Emli Gud Onion Kachumbar is a sweet , sour and spicy Raita relished with Pulao's . Though in memon's ( community ) we address Raita as kachumber, since its our mother tongue so I have a habit of referring all Rait's as Kachumbar....

This tamarind jaggery Onion Kachumber is really easy to make , delicious and is apt when served with mutor pulao, chicken pulao, authentic mutton pulao, captain pulao or any other pulao's .
