Dhoklis are nothing but dumplings made of various flours, which add body to subzis and enhance their taste. While dhoklis are traditionally made with besan, you can also exercise your discretion and choose other flours. Fansi dhokli is one such recipe that makes smart use of dhoklis, combining them with the goodness of french beans. When making dhokli, remember to one or two dhoklis to see if they turn out soft. Then add the remaining ones.
