Dhokla is an appetizer very popular from the cuisine of Gujarat, a Western Indian state. This snack is fluffy and spongy and is soaked with tangy sauce of coriander. Dhokla is sometimes served to accompany a meal.

Ingredients for Dhokla:

  • 200 gms Gram flour
  • 1 cup Curd (yogurt)
  • 1 tbsp Chopped green chili
  • 1/2 tsp Turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp Mustard seeds
  • 1 tbsp Chopped ginger
  • 1 tsp Soda bi-carb
  • 1 tbsp Chopped green coriander
  • 1/2 cup Fresh grated coconut
  • 1 Lemon
  • 2 tbsp Oil
  • Salt As per taste

Directions for making Dhokla:

  1. Take gram flour in a bowl. Add beaten Yogurt and warm water. Whisk well to remove all lumps. The mixture should have a thick consistency. Add salt and cover it and leave it to ferment for 3-4 hours.
  2. Make a paste of ginger and green chilies.
  3. Add this paste to the fermented mixture. Add turmeric powder and correct seasoning.
  4. Keep the steamer ready on the flame.
  5. Grease a dhokla mold or a shallow cake tin with a little oil. In a small bowl take one teaspoon of soda bi-carb, 1 teaspoon oil and juice of lemon. Mix well and add this to the Gram flour mixture.
  6. Pour the batter into the greased mold and steam for 10-12 minutes.
  7. Cool for sometime. Cut into squares and arrange in a serving platter/bowl.
  8. Heat oil in a small pan. Add mustard seeds. When the seeds begin to crackle, remove and pour over the dhoklas.
  9. Serve garnished with chopped green coriander leaves and grated coconut.
  10. Enjoy your Dhokla. Hope you love this Indian recipe.
