Actually Dhokla name is new to me and after i saw the recipe from chef in you and jayashri's i want to give a try to it. Finally i found the time and did it and it came very well.

Ingredients: I
  • Bengal Gram flour/Besan – 2 cups
  • Curd/Yogurt – 1/2 cup
  • Water – 1/2 cup
  • Cooking/Baking Soda (Bi carbonate of soda) – 1/2 tsp
Ingredients: II
  • Turmeric powder - a pinch
  • Green Chili paste – 1/2 tsp (or green chillies - 2 choppped finely)
  • Sugar – 1 tsp
  • Lemon juice - 1/2 tsp
  • Eno fruit salt– 1.5 tsp
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil - 1 tsp
Ingredients: III
  • Mustard Seeds
  • Curry leaves
  • Coriander leaves
  • Oil - 2 tsp

  • First mix the curd with water and make like a buttermilk.
  • To this add the besan and mix well to get a lump less batter, the consistency should be of idli batter.
  • If you need water add it, else add soda.
  • Keep it aside for 1 hr.
  • After 1 hr, add the ingredients II to the batter and mix well.
  • You need to steam the batter. so a plate that fits to the pressure cooker.
  • Before mixing the ingredients II to the batter, switch on the stove and place the cooker filled with water and  place a vesserl over which you need to place a plate in which you are going to steam the dhokla's.
  • Allow the water to boil.
  • Now sprinkle a pinch of eno in the plate and pour the batter (Ingredients II nixed) to the plate and place the plate immediately on the vessel.
  • Close it (no need to put whistle) and wait for 5 mts.
  • After 5 mts, using a knife, just check whether the dhokla's are perfectly coooked (by putting the kinfe inside the dhokla and checking no batter sticks to the knife).
  • Now switch off the stove and remove the plate.
  • Now in a small pan, add the ingredients III and when mustard seeds starts spluttering, just pour them on top of the dhokla's.
  • Allow the dhoklas to cool for 3 to 4 mts and cut them in to desired shape and serve hot with green chutney or any chutney.
