Dhokla-recipe_1

At last I made Dhokla! I wanted to make this ever since I saw here. But lazy me never made time to try it out. Sometimes, when I decide to make there wont be enough curd,sometimes besan, or any other ingredients. This time I had every ingredient and tried it and enjoyedDancing.It was super soft and spongy. So here’s the Dhokla recipe which I made…


Dhokla+recipe_2

Dhokla recipe

Indian Snacks
Prep Time: 5 mins    |  Cook time: 15 mins    Serves: 2

Ingredients


Besan flour/Kadala mavu  1 cup 
Curd  1/2 cup 
Water  1/2 cup 
Green chilli 2
Ginger  1 inch piece 
Sugar  1 tsp 
Lemon juice  1 tsp 
Eno fruit salt 1 & 1/2 tsp
Salt  As needed (1 tsp) 
Turmeric powder(optional)  1small pinch 
Coriander leaves  2 tblsp 
Coconut,grated  2-3  tblsp 

To temper
Oil 1 tsp
Mustard 3/4 tsp
Asafoetida 1/8 tsp

Method

  1. Grind ginger and green chilli with little water*(refer notes). Take besan in a bowl, add the ground ginger green chilli, water, curd, lemon juice, turmeric, sugar and salt to it.
  2. d1-horz
  3. Mix well and keep aside. Take a wide flat bottomed vessel, (I used the cooker container) grease it generously with oil. Mix the eno salt to the besan mixture, at the time you are going to steam. Make sure to mix well.
  4. d2-horz
  5. Steam this mixture for 10-12 minutes. I steamed in the pressure cooker,without the pressure valve. Insert a knife to check if its done. It should come out clean. Keep for 5 minutes to cool down and then invert to a plate. Cut into desired shape.
  6. d3-horz
  7. Temper with the items given under ‘To temper’ table and spread it over the pieces and garnish with coriander leaves,grated coconut.
  8. d4-horz

Notes


  • *When you grind with water, use it from the 1/2 cup water that I have mentioned in the ingredients.Do not use excess water.
  • If you use excess water than mentioned then it will turn out gooey.
  • Make sure to use ginger and asafoetida generously for nice aroma. You can even add asafoetida raw, in the batter. A pinch will be enough.
  • Never add more turmeric, you may not tolerate that smell (experience ;)
  • If you don’t have eno fruit salt you can replace it with 1/2 tsp cooking soda.


And serve it with green chutney. I cut them into squares, you can even cut it like we cut Pizza...

  66. What is Eno fruit salt? ... :)

    ReplyDelete
  67. It can be found in medical section in stores where you find gelusil and all those things. It's given for gastric problem. Just like soda.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Hi Raks,

    ReplyDelete
  69. Fantastic recipe, came out great! This is going to be a regular at my house from today, thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  70. Hi Raks, I tried this out today and the taste was good.. but i had one issue that it did nit stay in shape they were all falling apart.. is this something to do with the fruit salt measurement ??

    ReplyDelete
  71. If It was gooey, then water could have been more, if it was too soft to handle, may be it should be more of the fruit salt.

    ReplyDelete
  72. i tried ur dhokla recipe..it was soo yummyy

  76. Dear Raks, is there an alternative to the Besan flour...i am allergic to besan/gram products. Tnx

    ReplyDelete
  77. You can try sooji ( chiroti rava) and see. You may need to vary the measurements accordingly ...

    ReplyDelete
  78. hi, have you tried it with soda? it never fluffed up and stuck to the pan :( I can never find eno here :(

    ReplyDelete
  79. should the batter need resting time

    ReplyDelete
  80. No it doestnt. Infact, after adding eno, u have to make immediately.

    ReplyDelete
  81. I tried it today but it tasted bitter.Not sure what went wrong.I added baking powder instead of eno.Not sure if that was the reason:)
