Khaman Dhokla

Most of us would have definitely know about this spongy steam cooked besan cakes named as Khaman Dhoklas from Gujarat, dunno somehow i missed making this spongy dhoklas and i really had an opportunity to try them sterday for sending to Nayna's Flavours of Gujarat...Few months back, this khaman dhokla was one of the challenge for Indian cooking challenge, i have missed that challenge coz of some reasons, fortunately i followed making this dhoklas with the same procedure as given for Indian Cooking Challenge and they turned out truly very spongy and yummy..Traditionally this dhoklas are made by grinding channadal along with spices and fermented, later this fermented batter will be steam cooked and cut into medium sized cubes finally garnished with grated coconut  and coriander leaves with tempered mustard seeds and sesame seeds..This instant version of khaman dhokla is completely very easy to make and will get ready in less minutes compared to the traditional one..Sending to Only Event-Low Oil/Low Calorie guest hosted by Priya, event by Pari..

Khaman Dhokla

1cup Gram flour
1/2cup Curd
1/2cup Water
1/2tsp Baking soda
1/4tsp Turmeric powder
1/2tsp Green chilly paste
1/4tsp Lemon juice
1packet Eno Salt
1tsp Sugar
Salt
1/4tsp Mustard seeds
1/4tsp Sesame seeds
2tbsp Grated coconut
1tbsp Coriander leaves (chopped)

Mix the curd and water together, gradually add the gram flour and turn them as like idli batter..add the baking soda, give a stir..Heat a pressure cooker with enough water, place a plate..now add the lemon juice, salt, green chilly paste,sugar,eno salt and turmeric powder, mix well...Pour this batter in a greased vessel and place gently into the pressure cooker..close the cooker and cook in high flame..

Steam cook this batter until the steam comes and put the flame in simmer, cook again for 10minutes..Remove the lid and insert a toothpick to check whether they get cooked well..Meanwhile heat a pan with oil, fry the sesame seeds, mustard seeds and pour over the cooked dhoklas..cut them as cubes and serve along with grated coconuts and chopped coriander leaves..

Enjoy this dhoklas warm with spicy green chutney..

  27. Gosh your dhoklas look perfect. I have never been successful in making instant dhoklas. I always soak the chick pea flour in yogurt overnight to get the perfect dhoklas. I'll try your recipe.
