How to make Instant Microwave Dhokla

  1. First of all take Besan and curd in a mixing bowl and mix well with the help of a spoon. Add water to form a smooth paste.
  2. Now add 1 spoon sugar, 1 spoon salt, grated ginger and a spoon of oil to the besan curd mixture and mix well. Add a spoon of turmeric for a nice yellow colour and a pinch of asafoetida.
  3. Grease a plastic container with oil. Add a sachet of Eno fruit salt to the above mixture and mix well. Now add this mixture to the container till 3/4th height so the mixture has enough space to expand;
  4. Put it in micorwave for 5 minutes on high power. After 5 mins, check with a knife. If the knife comes out dry, the dhokla is ready. Otherwise keep it in microwave for another minute.
  5. Now cut the dhokla into small cubicle pieces and let it remain inside the box.
  6. Now for preparing the syrup, slit 5-6 green chilies vertically. Wash curry leaves and coriander leaves.
  7. Take a spoon full of oil in a pan and heat it. Once the oil is hot, add mustard seeds,chilies, coriander and curry leaves. Add a cup of water when the seeds start to splutter. Now add a spoon of sugar and salt as per the taste.
  8. After boiling for a minute, switch off the flame and squeeze a lemon into the syrup. Now the syrup is ready.
  9. Pour the syrup with the help of a spoon to the dhoklas. Let it sit for 2-3 minutes.
  10. Take the dhoklas out in a plate and serve it with green chutney.

My Tip:

Do not forget to add the asafoetida. It reduces the gastric property of Dhokla and makes it more digestive, hence more healthy.
