Spongy Dhokla in minutes

Hello friends.
Lets make some delicious home made dhokla today. Khaman Dhokla as it is popularly known  is originally a  Gujarati breakfast/snack item. It is made using besan, baking soda and curry leaves. This vegetarian snack is a hit at kitty parties and picnics. Its light and spongy, and its addictive taste is the main reason it is relished so much.

So come on, make along with me, Farzeen Irani. Note the ingredients below.


For Batter
1 cup gram flour (besan)
1 tbsp rawa
1 tsp sugar
1 tbsp cooking oil
1 tsp Green Chilies (paste)
1 tsp Ginger (paste)
1 Eno sachet

1/2 cup curd
1 cup water
1 tsp lemon juice
Salt to taste

For Garnish 1 tsp mustard seeds
4 sliced green chilli
Few corriander leaves
1 tsp oil 
15 curry leaves


1.      In a bowl, add gram flour, rawa, curd and water.

2.      Mix well with a strong hand to make a smooth batter. The batter should be of thick like pancake or dosa batter.

3.      Now add sugar salt and set aside for minimum 3 hours covered with a lid.

4.      At this stage add the ginger and green chili paste to the batter.

5.      Now in small bowl take a tsp of Eno fruit salt, 1tsp oil and lemon juice and mix well. 

6.      Add this to the batter and mix well.

7.      Grease a baking dish that will fit into a cooker or steamer.
8.      Pour this batter into the greased pan and steam for 10-12 minutes or till done. You can poke a knife into the dhokla to check. If the knife comes out clean, its done. If batter sticks to knife the dhokla is raw.
       Cool for ten minutes and cut into big cubes.

For the garnish ( Tadka)

 Heat little oil in a small pan and add mustard seeds and curry leaves allow to splutter. Remove and pour it over dhoklas.
Garnish with coriander and slit green chilies. Serve it fresh at tea time with green chutney or sauce.
