Lockdown Cooking | Yellow Dhokla

Dhokla is one of the most loved Gujarati delicacies which is often made for breakfast or evening snacks. Dhokla is made from Bengal gram flour and has a mixture of both sweet and salty taste. They have a texture like that of a pancake and has the taste of a snack with a khatta – meetha flavor.

Dhokla is steamed and not fried – which means, this can be consumed even when on a diet, but mind the proportion as sugar is added to get the perfect taste.

What did I use?

  • Bengal gram flour or besan – 260 grams
  • Salt – as per taste
  • Sugar – 6 to 7 teaspoon
  • Citric acid crystals or Nimbu ka phool – 1 teaspoon
  • Water – as required
  • Semolina / Rava / Sooji – 2 tablespoon
  • Cooking soda – 1 teaspoon

How did I make it?

  • I took a bowl and prepared a batter using besan, salt, sugar, water, citric acid crystals, and rava. I had to ensure that my batter has a consistency as that of cake. After preparing the batter, I whisked the batter for about 5 to 7 minutes and allowed it to rest for 15 minutes. 
  • While my batter was resting, I took a deep pan and added water to it. I am going to use this pan as my steaming machine and to steam the dhoklas, I am going to place a tray inside the pan.
  • After about 15 minutes, I took about 2 tablespoons of water and mixed cooking soda to it and added it to the batter. I whisked for about 30 seconds and then poured the batter inside the tray and allowed it to steam for about 8 to 10 minutes on medium-high flame.
  • Dhoklas are ready! You can also add tempering on the top, but since I prefer eating this with tea, I do not temper or add any garnishing on the top.
