Now after a long break this is one more contri for the SWC-Mahrashtra
This is my husbands favourite and i like it too as it is easy and a one dish meal.... So whenever I feel tired our meal is Chakolya...
So here goes the recipe...


For the dough
2 cups wheat flour
1tsp turmeric
1tsp asafoetida
1tsp red chilli powder
1 tbsp gram flour (besan)
1tsp salt

For the Dal
1 cup Tuvar dal
1 tsp mustard seeds
1tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp asafoetida
1 tsp red chilli powder
1 tsp garam masala
1 tsp tamarind pulp
2-3 Amsul
1tsp jaggery
1tsp oil

1. Pressure cook the dal very soft.
2. Heat oil in a big vessel. Add mustard seeds, once they crackle add asafoetida, turmeric. Add the pressure cooked dal, garam masala, red chilli powder, tamarind pulp, amsul and jaggery.
3. Add water enough so that the chakolya can immerse into it. Let it boil for some time.

4. Make a soft dough using all the ingredients given for dough. Make small balls from the dough and roll them out like we do for roti. Then cut them into pieces. Refer the picture.

5. Put these pieces into the boiling dal and keep on the gas until the chakolya are cooked nicely.
