How to make Khaman dhokla

  1. First prepare your steamer and place on heat. In a bowl mix all dry ingredients except eno, add oil and little by little water to form lump free smooth dropping consistency batter, mix well you may blend using hand blender. Once the water in steamer starts boiling grease a 6-8" tin (you may use a plate but i used a tin to give height to my dhokla) add eno mix well and pour the batter into tin, put for steaming. Steam for 12-15 mins or till done. **insert a toothpick or knife and if it comes out clean its done.
  2. Remove from steamer immediately and let it stand for 5-7mins, turn the tin upside down in a plate let it cool for 10 mins, cut into squares. For tempering- in a pan heat oil add mustard seeds, hing when it splutter add chillies and curry leaves, pour 2 cups of water to it add 1tbsp of sugar and a pinch of salt, heat till sugar melts pour this above dhokla with spoon so as to soak well Garnish with coriander leaves and sev, serve with green chutney.

My Tip:

Heat the steamer before adding fruit salt.
