Instant Dhokla

This is another best recipe for the working women and mothers with fussy kids. This can be prepared instantly with very few ingredients. This is one of my son's favourite. All of a sudden he asks dhokla for his lunch box. Now I know the fix for these unexpected issues.


Mix these ingredients together and let it rest for 30 minutes:
Sooji / Rava / Fine Semolina-1 cup

Basin / Senagapindi - 2 tbsp

Yoghurt-1 cup
Water-1 cup
Hing-a pinch
Turmeric powder-1/4 tsp
Green chilli chopped-1/2 tsp
Coriander leaves(Cilantro) chopped-2 tbsp
Coconut grated-1 tbsp
Lemon juice-2 tsp

To season in 1 tbsp oil:
Jeera-1 tsp(optional)
Mustard seeds-1/2 tsp

Other ingredients:
Eno fruit salt-1 tsp

Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds and jeera and allow it to crackle. Add this to the batter that has been sitting for 30 minutes.
Just before steaming add eno fruit salt. Mix the batter well. 

Dhokla steamer

Pour the mixture into greased plates.

Pour 1 or 2 cups of water into the steamer and steam on high flame for 12 minutes.
If you do not have the dhokla plates, you can use idly plates or even cake tins.

Allow it cool down and cut into desired shapes. Sprinkle some fresh grated coconut.

Note: These measurements are for one 7 inch plate. If you want to make more, increase the ingredients in the same ratios.
