Ingredients to make Mung Dhokla

  • 1. Split Yellow Moong Dal - 1 cup( 250 ml)
  • 2.Fruit Salt - 1 sanchet ( 1 tsp)
  • 3.Salt to taste
  • 4. Freshly Grated Coconut -1 tbsp
  • 5. Deseeded finely chopped green chillies -3
  • 6. Asafoetida -1/4 tsp
  • 7. Clarified Butter / Oil - 1 tbsp
  • 8. Sugar( optional) - 1 tbsp ( adjust)

How to make Mung Dhokla

  1. Soak the mung dal overnight with water .
  2. Add asafoetida, salt and remove excess water and grind it to a smooth paste. You can add sugar if you like your dhoklas a little sweet .
  3. Grease a cake pan or any vessel with oil/ Ghee.
  4. Just before you pour the batter into the cake pan,add the fruitsalt and mix. You will see that the batter has well risen and has become fluffy and light.
  5. Steam the Dhokla for 15 minutes in medium flame. Check by inserting a toothpick to see that it comes out clean. Switch off.
  6. Let it cool for 10 minutes. Remove from the cake pan , garnish with coconut, finely chopped cilantro and using a knife cut them into cubes ( without fully cutting it ).
  7. Temper with oil, chopped green chillies and mustard. I did not have fresh cilantro so used some curry leaves to garnish.
My Tip: 1. Adding Sugar is optional. You can also prepare a simple sugar syrup ( 1:1) and glaze the Dhoklas before you temper. 2. Adding fresh coconut adds to the taste. 3. You can have the Dhoklas hot or cold. 4. Cut before you glaze or temper so that the oil or sugar spreads uniformly. 5. You add any grated vegetable to make it more healthy.
