Today is 69th Republic Day of India. Happy Republic Day to all my blogger friends.
To mark this occasion I have made Tricolor Dhokla. What Tricolor means. Tricolor consists of three colors i.e. Saffron (Upper Layer), White (Middle Layer) and Green (Lower Layer). Each color has its own significance.
Upper Layer i.e. Saffron Color symbolizes Strength and Courage of Country. Middle Layer i.e. White Color symbolizes Peace and Truth. Middle Layer has one Chakra i.e. Ashok Chakra. Lower Layer i.e. Green Color symbolizes Fertility, Growth and Auspiciousness of the Land.
Tricolor Dhokla is very delicious lip smacking snack recipe which is very easy and simple to make. No artificial color has been added to dhokla. Colors given to dhokla are from easily available ingredients at our home.

- If your red chilli powder is not too hot and spicy then you can add more of it and if it is too hot and spicy then reduce its quantity and increase turmeric powder quantity.
