About Cornmeal Dhokla Recipe

Dhokla is one of the favourite breakfast in North India, people are very much fond of this steamed food. Usually Dhoklas are prepared by soaking dals,grinding and fermenting them overnite, but instant versions exists. Instant dhoklas are prepared by gram glour (besan) or else simply with semolina (rava or suji). But for a change i tried my hands in making this famous steamed cooked cakes aka Dhokla.
