Ingredients to make White Dhokla

  • Dhokla flour 1 bowl (Grind 3 cups of rice with 1 cup of dal)
  • ginger- Garlic and Chilli paste 1 tbsp
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • salt to taste
  • 1 serving spoon oil
  • 3 tsp curd
  • For the green chutney:
  • 1 cup coriander leaves

How to make White Dhokla

  1. Take the dhokla flour in a bowl, add lukewarm water and curd to it. (It should not be too thick or too watery.) Let this ferment for 7-8 hours or overnight.
  2. The next day, add in the ginger- garlic and chilli paste, salt, soda and oil to the batter. Mix it properly.
  3. Put some water in a kadai. Keep a stand. Grease a thali with oil and place it in the kadai.
  4. Once heated, pour in the batter and note that it should be a thin layer. Cover and keep weight on it. Let it cook on fast for 5 minutes, then on slow for 1 minute.
  5. Once cooked, let it cool and cut into desired shapes.
  6. Grind the ingredients listed under the 'Green chutney' and prepare the chutney. Keep it aside.
  7. Add a tempering of mustard seeds and curry leaves on top. Serve it with the green chutney.

My Tip:

Please ensure that the baking soda is fresh.
