I like Gujarati Dhokla very much. I will try this instant one.
WOW. You make the recipes look so healthy & Yummy. Thks So Much.
Hi padhu, this recipe s nice.heard about dhoklas, but never tried. Wanna try this.can we do this without eno salt.? Why do we use tat here?
JPS -Eno is added to give softness and sponginess to the dhokla. It is harmless but if you do not want to add it you can try it with baking soda.
padhu if we make with baking soda ill it be soft as like eno
Saran shalu- If you add baking powder and hot oil,it will come soft to some extent. You can try it and give me your feedback.
This is very similar to rava idli. Rava idlis are made in the same fashion except that they are cooked in idli vessels.
I tried this recipe and it came out very good..Instead of grated carrot i used grated bottle gourd
