How to make Tri-colour dhokla

  1. Here are three steps that one needs to follow: Firstly, one needs to mix the white batter and yellow batter in separate containers and set aside to ferment. Next day, grind the paste, make the seasonings and steam the dhokla.

  6. Now, mix both the flour separately. Put the soda mixture to both.
  7. Take a small pressure cooker or idli stand. Put water in the beneath. Grease a bowl, pour the white mixture into it, keep it to steam in the pan.
  8. Let cook for five minutes, now smear the green paste slowly with a spoon over it. Let cook for five minutes.
  9. Now, pour the yellow batter over it. Allow to cook until it is done. A knife should come out clean.
  10. Prepare the seasoning. Take oil in a pan, add mustard seeds, as it crackles, put cumin, asafoetida, green chilli and curry leaves to it. Keep it aside. Mix buttermilk into the seasoning.

My Tip:

The dhokla batter needs to be set aside for six hours or over night. Sour curd is necessary.
