Khyati's Health-O-Meter Says:

Mixed dal dhokla is an amazing dish packed with a great balance of proteins and carbohydrates. Dhoklas are fermented which also increases the bio-availability of minerals present in food, helping the body assimilate more nutrition. The micro-organisms in the dhokla break down complex protein, carbohydrates, and fats into more easily assimilated molecules. Therefore, since healthy gut flora plays a key role in absorption, our body is able to absorb the maximum amount of nutrients, preventing nutrient deficiencies that are so common today.

They are rich in dietary fibre which helps to normalize your blood glucose levels. If you have diabetes, chickpea or Kabuli chana can help you balance blood sugar levels while providing steady, slow-burning energy. They have a low glycemic index value which means the carbohydrate in them is broken down and digested slowly. This is helpful for weight loss as it controls appetite.
