This Schezwan Dhokla fusion dish is not an April Fools day prank
A result of the corona virus lockdown
No, this isn’t an April Fool’s day joke. My mum and I actually made a dish called schezwan dhokla. Well, mostly it was all her. Wondering why? Well, for the simple reason of country-wide lockdown.
The lockdown has restricted our movements outside the house, leading to a scarcity of essential resources like food items sometimes. Yesterday was one such day. And our family wasn’t ready to have the two-minute noodles because we didn’t have that as well.
So, utilising her efficient brains, my mother decided to make use of all possible things in the fridge so that we could try something different on this not-so-different tenth lockdown day in our house.
For people who think having just dhokla, a signature Gujarati dish, as it is can be quite plain and bland for the mouth, this fusion might help those spice-hungry beings. Besides, Indians love making a desi spice-filled fusion of every food item they see. Dhokla, an Indian itself, was the most recent victim. And it was delicious!
We tried this dish with Vegetable pakodas for dinner because sitting at home all day does result in an increased appetite.
