Ingredients to make Instant dhokla

  • 1 cup besan
  • 1/2 cup yogurt (preferably sour)
  • 2 tbsp Oil
  • 1 1/2 tsp eno
  • 1 tbsp sooji (bombay rava)
  • 1/2 tsp haldi/turmeric powder
  • 1/4 tsp citric acid
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 inch ginger, grated or crushed
  • Green chilies finely chopped to taste
  • Salt to taste
  • Water as needed to make batter
  • For Tadka:
  • 1 sprig curry leaves
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp white sesame seeds (optional)
  • Some chopped coriander leaves for garnishing
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 2 tsp oil
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 1/3 cup water (use upto 1/2 cup if you feel its not enough)

How to make Instant dhokla

  1. Keep the dhokla stand ready and grease the plate or tray in which you are planning to steam the dhoklas. Now mix together all the ingredients except eno and tadka ingredients.
  2. Make a lump free batter by adding some water to it. Please make sure not to add too much of water, we don’t want a runny batter. The batter consistency should be like that of cake batter.
  3. Let the batter sit for 2 minutes. Now add eno to the batter, mix really nicely and pour the batter in the greased tray and steam it for 20 minutes in medium flame. You can do a toothpick test too to check if its done or not.
  4. For tadka, Heat oil in pan, add raai, let it crackle and switch off the flame. Now add curry leaves, sesame seeds, green chilly to it.
  5. Let everything cool down a little and than add half a cup of water to the mixture, add sugar, juice of half a lemon and bring it to a boil. Switch off the flame and let it cool down a little.
  6. Now using a spoon, spread the tadka all over the dhokla. Make sure to spread the water all over the dhokla very nicely. Adding water is really important to make soft fluffy dhoklas.
  7. In case you feel 1/3 cup water is not enough to soak the dhokla, use upto 1/2 cup. After spreading water, let it sit for a few minutes, cut and serve with some coriander chutney and imli chutney.

My Tip:

. I strongly suggest to use citric acid, lemon juice or vinegar won’t really work. Using sour curd also makes a lot difference, but in case its nit available, you can use fresh curd too.
