Ingredients to make Tricolor Dhokla

  • 200 grams Rawa/Suji/semolina
  • 1.5 cups curd
  • 1 teaspoon eno fruit salt
  • 1 teaspoon rai(black mustard seeds)
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon juice

How to make Tricolor Dhokla

  1. In a bowl, vigorously mix sugar, salt with curd. Also add finely chopped chilli and red chilli powder. Add the rawa and mix well. You can add more rava and water to make a smooth pouring consistency batter. Add 1 tbsp. oil to the batter.
  2. Keep it in room temperature for atleast an hour. If it is not very sour, then you can add little lemon juice also.
  3. Heat enough water in a big kadhai or pressure cooker and place a wire stand in it. Grease a cake tin. Add eno to the batter and whisk for 10 seconds.
  4. Pour it in the tin and steam for 18 minutes or until done. Once its done, then you can run a knife all around and take out by inverting it on a plate.
  5. For tadka, heat 1 tbsp. Oil in a pan and crackle rai in it. Switch off the flame and add 1/2 cup water, 1 tsp, sugar, little salt and mix. Boil this. Pour this over the dhokla. (This recipe is for 1 layer.)

My Tip:

You can use tomatoes and turmeric for orange colored batter and spinach leaves for green colored batter.
