thank Devi-ji,
The dhokla recipe is such an important recipe for myself--as a vegetarian of many years I've recently have been in search for a LOW-CARB/high-protein food that is easily home-made and than packed in small units for consumption through-out the course of the day.
Next, I'll be searching for Chinese Bean Cakes Recipes [it seems to be a related recipe]
jai sri Krsna,
