What is a dhokla?

    What is a dhokla?
  1. Dhokla is a soft and fluffy steamed snack from the Gujarati repertoire. This all-time favourite is enjoyed as a starter, as a tea-time snack, or even for breakfast. Basically, something you can have any time you are hungry!
  2. There are innumerable dhokla recipes falling under different types, so you can make this snack multiple times a week and still not get bored. Some dhokla batters like the healthy Moong Dal Dhokla require grinding and fermentation, while others like the Rava Dhokla are quick-fix options that you can simply mix and steam. If you have just a few minutes, not to worry, you can put together yummy Khaman Dhokla in the microwave - Microwave Mug Dhokla! You can even make Khatta Dhokla with handy idli batter. So, depending on the availability of time and ingredients, you can pick a dhokla recipe.
  3. The best part is that you can always reinforce your dhokla batter with delicious and tasty veggies and greens, like grated carrots, crushed green peas or fenugreek leaves. This makes the dhokla colourful, tasty and healthy too. Once you know the different types of dhokla batters, you can go it on your own, by varying the added veggies, tempering, and so on, according to preferences and availability.
