How to make Instant white khatta dhokla

  1. First of all mix semolina, rice flour ,yogurt, salt and required water to make a lump less idli like batter. Let it rest for 1 hr or overnight at any cool place , if planning to prepare early morning.
  2. * But never keep in refrigerator other wise semolina will not absorb liquid. * for quick result use hot water to make batter and let it sit for 1/2 an hour.
  3. If after soaking,you find your batter thicker than regular idli batter then add little water at a time and correct the consistency. Now add ginger garlic paste and chilies. Mix well, your batter is ready to be used. 
  4. Make your steamer ready by heating 1 cup of water in a wide vessel with stand in base. You vessel should be wide enough to hold your mold easily.
  5. Now separate required batter in another bowl, which can be used to fill your mold at a time. Now add two to three pinches of baking soda or 3/4 spoon eno powder and 1/4 tsp citric acid to separated batter. Give a quick stir you will see nice frothy batter , don't over mix the batter otherwise all the air bubbles formed ,will vanish and result in hard dhokla.
  6. Now fill the mold immediately with required batter and either steam as regular for 15-20 minutes by putting your mold in steamer with lids closed or microwave for 5-6 minutes, depend on size of mold and microwave power.
  7. Check for doneness by inserting a knife or skewer in middle of dhokla, if it comes out clean then done, other wise cook for some more minutes.
  8.  Let it rest for 2-3 minutes then demold. Now cut desired shapes with knife. Similarly make the other batches too.
  9. Now heat oil in tempering pan, add asafetida,cumin seeds and mustard seeds. Let them crackle then add curry leaves and chilies. Let curry leaves become crisp. Now switch off the flame and add sesame seeds, stir quickly and pour all over the dhokla evenly.
  10. Now your hot tempting dhokla is ready to serve with tomato coriander chutney or any sauce of your choice.
  11. *  You can add any veggies too, of your choice. * After adding soda or eno , use the batter immediately. That's why add soda or eno in batches of batter, when needed.
  12. * For more soft dhokla , use eno instead of baking soda. But baking soda also works well. * Instead of citric acid you can also use lemon juice, but citric acid gives more fluffier result .
  13. * If you are making dhokla in microwave then keep a bowl with some water along with the microwave safe mold, to get nice moist dhokla. * Use nice sour yogurt for khatta dhokla or add some lemon juice to get sourness of your choice.
  14. * While using microwave, keep an eye on it as over doing may result in dry and hard dhokla. If you don't have silicon mold just use your regular mold and prepare these healthy and delicious tiffin snacks for your kids.
