For the dough
  Jowar flour 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Wheat flour 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Chickpea flour 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Salt 1 Teaspoon (to taste)
  Coriander cumin powder 1 Teaspoon
  Red chilli powder 1 Teaspoon (to taste)
  Turmeric powder 1 Pinch
  Olive oil 2 Tablespoon
  Water 1 Cup (16 tbs) (for kneading)
For the vegetables
  Oil 2 Tablespoon
  Mustard seeds 1 Teaspoon
  Hing 1 Pinch
  Chawli 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
  Ginger paste 1 Tablespoon
  Garlic paste 1 Tablespoon
  Green chilli paste 1 Tablespoon
  Water 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Salt 1 Teaspoon
  Brown sugar 1 Teaspoon
  Lime juice 1⁄2 Medium
  Coriander leaves 2 Tablespoon, finely chopped

1. In a large mixing bowl, combine together the milo flour, wheat flour, chickpea flour, salt and olive oil. Gradually pour in the water to form a dough. Cover and set aside.

2. In a pot on medium high, heat the oil, add mustard seeds, turmeric powder, hing, chawli, ginger paste, garlic paste, green chilli paste, water, salt and coriander cumin powder. Mix well, cover with a lid half closed and let it simmer on a low to medium heat for 8 minutes or until cooked.
3. On a floured board, slice the dough in half and place it on the board and using a rolling pin, roll it out into a flat base.
4. Take a sharp knife and make diagonal lines on the base. Using a spatula, fluff out the sliced diagonal pieces or dhokli from the board and transfer onto a plate. Repeat this step for the other half of the dough.
5. After about 8 minutes, take one dhokli at a time and put it into the cooked chawli. Mix well and cook until the liquid comes to a boil and let it simmer for 30 minutes or until thick.
6. Stir in the brown sugar and lime juice. Mix well and serve.

7. Serve the chawli dhokli in a serving bowl garnished with chopped coriander leaves.
