My Tip:

1) Sieving is the most important step so you don/t need to worry about lumps. 2) Luke warm water is necessary . It will give more sponginess to your dhokla. 3) Add water on Eno will give you bubbled batter, it will help you to rise the dhokla. 4) In tempering you can add sesame seed, curry leaves.
