Kadhi Dhokali ( chick-pea dumpling in sour gravy)

Kadhi dhokali is one of my favorite recipe. Unlike Gujarati kadhi it has spicy and sour taste.I used to make kadhi pakoda but in this recipe steamed chick-pea dumplings are used so it is healthy and yet testy.I learned it from my mother in law and she learned it from her’s. Everybody in our home loves it.
