Ingredients to make White (Khatta) Dhokla Cups in the Microwave

  • For the batter:
  • rice (Par-boiled or Idli rice) – 1 cup
  • urad dal (Split black lentils) – 1/4 cup
  • chana dal (Bengal gram) – 1/4 cup
  • ginger – 1/2 inch
  • Green chilies – 2 or 3
  • salt – to tast
  • For the tempering:
  • mustard seeds – 1 tbsp
  • sesame seeds – 1 tsp
  • Red chili-garlic masala (Lahsun-kanda masala) – 2 tsp
  • oil – 2 tbsp
  • sugar – 1 tsp
  • Asaoetida/Heeng – 1/2 tsp
  • curry leaves – 10 to 12
  • salt – a pinch

How to make White (Khatta) Dhokla Cups in the Microwave

  1. Wash and soak the rice and dal each in water for 4 to 6 hours, or overnight. In the morning, strain the water, wash the rice and dal again well.
  2. In a mixer, add the grains and the ginger and chilies, and without adding water, make a paste.
  3. Add only a spoonful of water at a time if the paste doesn’t come together, and keep grinding slowly until a thick batter is formed.
  4. Use your hands and with your fingers rub the paste to check consistency. There should be a slight graininess; the batter is ready.
  5. Keep this over to ferment in a large bowl, for at least 6 to 8 hours, or overnight.
  6. The batter will have doubled up by now. (I used half of this for the dhokla cups, that yielded 12 muffin-sized ones)
  7. Grease a microwave-safe muffin tray or individual cups with oil. Beat the batter with salt and a teaspoon of oil.
  8. Pour batter into compartments and microwave on high for 4 minutes. Insert skewer and see if done.
  9. Cool for a few minutes and remove on to a plate.
  10. Prepare the tempering by heating a pan with the oil. Add the mustard seeds and sesame seeds, let them sputter.
  11. Add the curry leaves, red chili-garlic masala, salt and asafoetida. Stir, add sugar.
  12. Add a teaspoon of water, and turn off heat.
  13. Pour over dhokla cups, and serve hot!

My Tip:

This recipe will work with leftover idli batter as well, and khaman dhokla batter too. You can even use rawa for this recipe, and instead of fermenting, make instant dhokla cups :)
