The Bread Dhokla is a quick-fix dhokla that is easy, convenient and tasty. Made with a batter of bread crumbs and rava perked up with the usual flavour-givers like green chillies and ginger, the Bread Dhokla tastes so good and so much like the authentic dhokla that nobody can guess that it is made of bread unless you tell them.

A traditional tempering adds to the authenticity of the dhoklas making it very appealing. Make sure you serve it immediately with green chutney to enjoy the nice, soft texture.
