Blackeye Bean Spinach Dhokla

Dhokla is a versatile breakfast or snack which can be made with so many variations and with different flours or mix.Quick to make.
Once I tried it with black eye beans and the outcome was just awesum. The combination with spinach was not only nutritious and healthy but so different in taste. ๐Ÿ˜‹

Here I didnt use oats or gramflour or any flour for binding as the batter didnt require. Had I used, the taste would have definately changed and I am glad I didnt๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜.
But unlike other dhoklas this requires soaking. So it needs planning one day in advance. ๐Ÿ˜†
