Dal dhokli, varan phal, or chakolya is a Rajasthani, Gujarati and Maharashtrian dish made by boiling thick wheat flour noodles in a pigeon pea stew. It is widely believed that the Marwaris who had migrated to Gujarat invented the dish. While the dish remains popular in Marwar part of Rajasthan, it is Gujaratis who have made it a staple in their homes. It is considered a comfort food.
