How to make rawa or semolina  dhokala 
Rawa/semolina  dhokala is made from  rawa and its easy to make savory snacks. It is  gujarati recipe  and it has many versions of it. Besan dhokala is very famous snacks and cooed in similar way but with different ingredients.  Its cooked by steaming , using special cooker for dhokala , idli cooker or pressure cooker. I have used pressure cooker for making rawa dhokala by removing its gasket.After removing gasket of pressure cooker steam dosen't pass out and dhokala gets cooked on steam inside pressure cooker.It takes 15- 20 minutes time for cooking using pressure cooker in this way.

Rawa dhokala can be served as breakfast or snacks.Its healthy recipe as cooked by steaming and using very less oil. I often make for snacks tiffin of  my daughter. I add mattar (green peas and carrots pieces in it for making more nutritious ) ,though its optional. Rawa dhokala is easy to digest so can be given to toddlers as a snacks.
