How to make Khaman Dhokla Recipe

  1. To begin preparing the Khaman Dhokla, take gram flour in a bowl, add yogurt, lemon juice, 1 teaspoon oil and approximately 1/2 cup of warm water and mix well to avoid lumps. Add salt and mix again.

  2. Leave it aside for 1/2 hour, and then add turmeric powder and green chilli-ginger paste to the batter.

  3. Put a stand in a big steamer, add water, grease a thali and put inside it, cover it and let it steam for a while.

  4. Add sodium bicarbonate and fruit salt into the batter and whisk briskly. Pour batter into the greased thali and place it in the steamer.

  5. I used cooker separator vessel instead of thali so that it does not over flow out of the thali.

  6. Cover the steamer with the lid and steam for ten minutes. 

  7. When the khaman dhokla are a little cool invert it in to a plate and cut into squares.

  8. Heat remaining oil in a small pan. Add mustard and sesame seeds. When the seeds begin to crackle, add curry leaves and asafoetida. Turn off the gas, add 2 teaspoons of water and a pinch of salt and pour over the dhoklas.

  9. Garnish with chopped coriander leaves and grated coconut.

  10. The Khaman Dhokla are now ready to be served with green chutney.
