Instant Dhokla

Dhokla is a side food or a snack originated from Gujrat, India. It is loved by Indian and one cannot suppress the mouth watering taste of the soft, spongy, juicy Dhokla.

What you need:
  1. 1 cup Gram flour (Besan)
  2. 1/2 cup Semolina (sooji)
  3. 1/2 cup Curd (Dahi)
  4. 1 Green Chili (slitted)
  5. 1 Pinch Turmeric
  6. Salt to taste
  7. 1 pinch Red chilly powder
  8. 1 packet Fruit Salt (ENO)
  9. 1 Tbsp Oil
  10. 1 tsp Mustard Seeds
  11. 2 Cup Water (1 cup for making batter and 1 cup for seasoning)
  12. Coriander Leaves
  13. 1 Tsp Sugar
  14. 1 lemon
Most of it is already present in an Indian Kitchen so it would not be a problem.
You have to Prepare the Dhokla batter for which you have to take a bowl, add Besan, suji, all the spices, and yogurt then Mix well.
Keep aside the bowl for at least an hour to ferment.
Now after an hour, take a steamer plate. Grease it with Oil completely from inner side.
Greasing will make sure that Dhokla does not stick to the bowl. Keep the bowl aside.
Add fruit salt in the Dhokla batter and mix well.
Dhokla batter is now fluffy and soft. This mixture is now ready for steaming in pressure cooker.
Fill 25% of pressure cooker with water and p
lace the Dhokla plate in the steamer and cover the lid of the pressure cooker/steamer.
Keep the stove on medium flame and steam the Dhokla for 15 minutes.
After every 5 minutes, check to see if water has not completely evaporated. If this happens, add 2 cups of water again.
After 15 minutes, Dhokla would be ready. Switch Off the stove and open the lid.
Separate the Dhokla from the corners of the bowl, with the help of a knife.
Take it out on a plate. Cut it into small pieces and keep it aside. And add the seasoning. Make sure dhokla absorbs all the water then only it will come out fluffy.
Making Dhokla Seasoning:
Heat 1/2 Tbsp of Oil in a pan for about 30 seconds on high flame.
Add Mustard seeds, curry leaves, and sliced Green chilies. Turn the flame on low.
After 30 seconds, add 1 cup of water. After mixing well, add 1 tsp of sugar, salt, lemon, and coriander leaves.
Eat with chutney of your choice.
Thank you.
