Khaman Dhokla is a famous Gujarati dish which can be had as a snack or even as a breakfast with green chutney or sweet tamarind chutney. Traditionally Gujaratis prepare Khamon dokla by soaking rice, urad dal and channa dal for 8 hours, then they grind it, ferment it for another 8 hours and then steam it. But I have prepared dhokla with besan and this is an instant version of dhokla which you can prepare in a matter of 15 minutes.Today let us learn how to make Instant dhokla and Green chutney following this easy dokla recipe
Grease the tray in which you are going to steam dhokla with oil.
Bring water to boiling point and keep everything ready for steaming as you have to steam immediately after adding the fruit salt. Place a stand inside the steamer.You will be placing the tray on top of this stand.
In a bowl, mix besan, sooji, sugar, lemon juice, turmeric powder, oil, ginger-green chilli paste and salt needed.
First add little water and mix well like a paste. Make sure there should be no lumps.
Then add more water. The dokla batter should be neither thick nor thin but should be of dropping consistency. Adjust sweetness and sourness according to your taste.
Now add fruits salt and mix briskly. Pour the batter into the greased tray and place it on the stand kept inside the steamer.
Steam for 15 minutes or until cooked.(you should steam immediately after adding fruit salt)
Once cooked, let it cool a little, then invert it on a plate. With a sharp knife, cut the dhokla but do not remove the pieces.
Preparing tadka -
Heat a tbsp of oil, add mustard seeds, when it splutters, add hing, green chillies and sesame seeds. After that switch off the flame, add water to the seasoning. Now pour the tadka with the water evenly over the dhokla and in between the cuts (We add water to get soft and spongy dhokla). Let the dhokla absorb the water.
Garnish with freshly grated coconut and coriander leaves.
Remove the pieces on a serving plate and enjoy with green chutney.
