Khaman Dhokla

Dhokla is a Gujrathi snack similar to Idly. There are different forms of Dhokla and Khaman Dhokla is one of them. Here is the recipe for an Instant Khaman Dhokla which is perfect for an evening snack with tamarind chutney or corainder chutney.


1 cup Besan/Gram flour
Pinch of Turmeric powder
2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp citric acid crystals or juice of one whole lemon
1 tsp salt
1 cup water
1 tsp soda-bicarbonate
Oil for greasing and tempering

For tempering:
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp sesame seeds(optional)
Few curry leaves
Finely chopped coriander
grated fresh coconut
Mix all the dry and wet ingredients(except oil) and make a thick batter, similar to Idly batter. Grease the bowl and pour the batter into it and steam it for about 15 minutes and cool it before taking it out of the bowl. Make the tempering with oil, mustard seeds,curry leaves and hing. Put the dhokla on a plate and add tempering on the dhokla and garnish with cilantro leaves and coconut. Serve warm with chutney.
