How to make dhokla

This is my mother’s recipe of dhokla. This is not even close to how the real dhokla is but over the years my mother’s aim to feed us more pulses and protein resulted in this variation. It is very tasty and super healthy. It takes only 20 minutes to cook. However, the preparation time is over night.

IMG_0401.JPGDo try and let me know in the comments how do you like it.

Ingredients

For Dhokla

Dal — can use as many varieties of dal as possible : 20gm

Rice — 40 gm rice

Ginger — ½ inch

Garlic — 10-12 cloves

Green chilli — 2

Green chilli for tempering – 10

Mustard seeds – 1 teaspoon

Curry leaves (meethi neem/ kadi patta) – 5 to 6 leaves

Refined oil

Salt to taste

Serves : 3-4 people

Preparation

All the pulses and rice have to be soaked in water for 5 – 6 hours. Once soft, grind it into a thick paste of dropping consistency.

Take ginger, garlic, green chilli, salt and make a paste. Add it into the batter of pulses and rice and keep it overnight to ferment. (The fermentation time will depend upon the season. In summer it takes around 4-5 hours to ferment in winters it takes around 8-12 hours going by the Indian temperature scale.)

Cooking

Apply oil on the dhokla maker dish (you can also use the idli maker, other than the shape there is no difference). Spread the batter on the dish to about 2 inch of thickness and put it to steam.

To check whether it is cooked, prick a knife. If the batter sticks to the knife it needs more steam.

Tempering

Once steamed, cut the dhokla into square pieces. In a kadhai, heat refined oil. Put a teaspoon of mustard seeds , 10 green chillies sliced longitudinally and curry leaves. Once it starts crackling  add the steamed and cut dhokla into it and mix well.

Serve it with chutney.

Ingredients for chutney

Ground nut – ½ bowl

Grated coconut – 2 spoons

Chilli – 2-3

Curd

Salt to taste

Method

Roast the ground nut (moongphali). Once roasted grind it with grated coconut and chillies. Add salt to taste. Add curd until the chutney reaches the desired consistency.

To enhance the taste, temper it with red chilli, mustard seeds and curry leaves, else enjoy without.
