Dhoka | by Shounak Ray

I don't know why this yummy food is called "dhoka" which means betrayal in English. All that I can say is that it had never betrayed me , but have always made my meals more delicious. Made form thick paste of pulses or "dal" along with other spices , this fried food is usually eaten as a curry with rice or roti(hand made bread) . It looks yummy in its diamond shape and tastes even better.

This particular set of "betrayals" were made by my mother and was laid out to cool before it was added to the mouthwatering curry along with some pieces of potato .
