Dhokla





Picture courtesy: My husband

Mother's day is not yet over. So here's wishing all moms happy mother's day!

I was wondering what my mom's favorite dish was? I could hardly recollect 2-3 dishes. Because mom always made sure she cooked food that my Appa and I liked the most. So today, I thought why not make her favorite dhokla. I came across this recipe in Manjula's kitchen. I like watching her videos. I have even met her once in San Diego. Dhoklas came out very soft and yummy. You should try it. I followed the recipe word by word. I steamed the dhoklas in idli plates.
You can find the original recipe here.

Ingredients:
Mix these ingredients together and let it rest for 30 minutes:
Sooji/Rava/Semolina-1 cup
Yogurt-1 cup
Water-1/4 cup
Salt
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

Method:
Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds and jeera and allow it to crackle. Pour this to the batter that has been sitting for 30 minutes.
Add eno fruit salt. Mix the batter well.
Steam on high flame using greased idli plates for 12 minutes.

I am not going to buy dhokla mix from stores anymore. I have the perfect recipe now!

    Saraswathi, try dhokla using eno salt. it will come out perfect.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Dhokla looks perfect Mahimaa, could not comment earlier since I was travelling.....

    ReplyDelete
  65. How did urs come out so soft and fluffy? i followed ur recipe word for word but mine turned out to be hard.... :(

    ReplyDelete
  66. J, You may have used eno fruit salt that had expired or used baking soda... thats my guess.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I got brand new eno fruit salt yesterday before making it! how long should you leave the batter after adding the eno salt?

    ReplyDelete
  68. you should not let the batter sit after adding eno.... carbon di oxide will escape making the dokla hard.. u should mix eno and immed pressure cook.... i tried with besan too.. it turned out so soft too.

    ReplyDelete
  69. how does one make soft fluffy nylon khaman dhoklas?? i have tried and tried and it never fluffs up...HELP

  70. preeti, just follow this method and you will get soft doklas. the trick is to add eno fruit salt and immediately steam the batter.
