  1. Wash and soak the chana dal for 5-6 hours.
  2. Prepare the tomato puree from a well-ripened tomato.Wash and soak the cumin seed for half an hour.
  3. To prepare cumin-ginger paste, grind peeled and clean ginger with 3-4 tbsp cumin seeds. Keep aside.
  4. To prepare dhokla / pea-lentil Cake, grind the soaked dal, green peas, fennel seeds to a batter of slightly coarse texture.
  5. Grease a flat bottom microwaveable dish. Pour the batter, and cook on micro high for 5-7 min or until set firmly.
  6. .You can steam or pressure cooker it. When cooled slightly, cut the cakes into desired shapes .
  7. Heat enough oil in a kadhai or deep bottom pan. Fry the dhoka till they are golden brown.
  8. In the same oil, fry the potatoes and keep aside.
  9. To prepare the curry, heat 2tsp oil in a pan.Add bay leaves, cinnamon, cardamom and cloves.
  10. Add the ginger-cumin paste.Saute for a while, then add tomato pureee. Add the lightly fried potatoes. Followed by all the spices except garam masala.
  11. Saute the masala paste till it leaves out oil. Add salt and sugar taste. Add enough water to cover half of the kadhai. Lower the flame and cook till potatoes are done.
  12. Once done, add gently add lentil cakes or dhoka. Add more water if requires. Cover the pan and let the dhokla simmered in gravy for 5 minutes.
  13. Just before switching off, sprinkle garam masala and drizzle a spoonful of ghee. Serve it warm.
My Tip: Dhokas will absorb all the water, so before adding the dhoklas, make sure enough water is there in the pan. It is best.
