Dhokla (With Eno Salt)

When I was little, I used to have a Gujarati neighbour who used to bring Dhokla from his hometown. I was never a fan of it due to the sweetness in it. It was later from my cousin that I learnt we can skip the sweet part of it. This is her recipe and one that I have tried and loved every time I made it. 

This is what you need:

1 cup Gram flour (Besan)
1 cup Rava (Sooji)
2 Green chillies
Few coriander leaves
1/2 inch Ginger
Lemon juice
1 Eno packet
1 tsp Sugar
Salt to taste

For Tadka:

1 tsp Mustard seeds
1 tsp Cumin seeds
Few Curry leaves
Few Coriander leaves
1 Green chilly finely minced

For Mint chutney:

Few Mint leaves
Few Coriander leaves
1/2 inch Ginger
2-3 Green chillies
Salt as reqd.

This is what you do:

  • Grind the green chillies, ginger and coriander leaves to a paste
  • Mix everything in a bowl except eno salt
  • Make a batter with water to idli batter consistency
  • Switch on the steamer
  • Grease a container with oil
  • Add Eno just before steaming. Immediately on adding Eno, the batter will rise.
  • Transfer the batter to the greased container and steam for 10 minutes. 
  • You can also microwave instead of steaming on medium for 5-7 minutes.
  • Insert a knife and if it comes out non sticky, your dhokla is ready.
  • Make a tadka of all the ingredients in tadka and pour over the dhokla.
  • Serve with mint chutney.

For mint chutney:

Grind all the ingredients with water. Add beaten curd if desired to the chutney.
