Dhokla Rasawala is a simple dish made with some leftover dhokla that has lost all its moisture, this rasawala dhokla is an ideal way to serve it. Simmer the dhokla pieces in rasa just before serving and see the left over dhoklas magically transform to a new avatar and create a left over magic, “Dhokla Rasawala ”. Even the fresh dhoklas for that matter in this form taste equally good.

Serve Rasawala Dhokla along with Gujarati Methi Thepla and Masala Chai for a filling and delicious breakfast with your family.
