Guvar dhokli nu shaak recipe | Guvar dhokli sabzi in pressure cooker | kathiyawadi guvar dhokli nu shaak

Guvar Dhokli Nu Shaak is a delightful dish that combines the earthy taste of guvar with the soft, pillowy texture of dhokli, enhanced by a burst of traditional Gujarati spices. However, in this variation of the recipe, I chose to make the dhokli using gram flour (besan) and then cook its batter in a pressure cooker. This alternative method allows for a quick and easy preparation of the sabzi within 15 minutes, saving time without compromising on taste.

This simple Kathiyawadi style curry is best enjoyed with roti, paratha, or steamed rice, providing a versatile and satisfying meal option suitable for any occasion. The beauty of this dish lies in its convenience, making it an ideal choice for busy days when you crave a delicious homemade meal in no time. I encourage you to give this quick and easy Guvar Dhokli Nu Shaak recipe a try and experience its delightful flavors firsthand!
