For cooking dhokli, take 2 to 3 cups of water in any vessel and allow it simmer. When water starts boiling, place dhokli pieces into. Cook the dhokli on high flame for 10 to 15 minutes and keep stirring at regular intervals.

After sauteing cumin seeds, add turmeric powder, curry leaves, dry red chilly, chopped green chilies and coriander powder. Saute the spices for few more minutes. add red chilly powder and mix well.
