Khaman Dhokla is a Gujarati (Indian State) snack item. This is a healthy snack as it is just steamed and doesn't involve any frying. Dhoklas served with Green Chutney and Tangy Chutney with Tea is mindblowing!



Preparation Time:

3-4 hrs

Cooking Time:

20 mins


Gram Flour - 2 Cups
  Sour Yogurt beaten - 1 Cup
  Warm Water - 1 Cup
  Salt to taste
  Turmeric Powder - ½ tsp
  Green Chilli Paste - 1tsp
  Ginger Paste - 1 tsp
  Oil - 2 tbsp
  Lemon Juice - 1 tbsp
  Soda Bicarbonate - 1 tsp
  Mustard Seeds - 1 tsp
  Coriander Leaves (Cilantro) for garnishing
  Coconut grated - ½ Cup


• Place the Gram Flour in a bowl. Add Yogurt and warm Water and mix well with hands so that no lupms are formed. To this add Salt and mix again. Set this aside for 3-4 hours.

• Once it is fermented add Turmeric Powder, Green Chilli Paste and Ginger Paste and mix well.

• Put the steamer on heat. In a small bowl, mix together Lemon Juice, Soda bicarbonate and a teaspoon of Oil. Add this to the above batter and mix well.

• Grease a Thali or a plate with edges. Pour this batter into the prepared Thali and place it in the steamer. Cover and steam for about 15 minutes or when you insert a toothpick it should come out clean.

• Let it cool and then cut into square pieces.

• Meanwhile heat the remaining Oil in a pan, add Mustard Seeds and Chillies (optional). Take off from heat and pour this on the Dhokla.

• Garnish with grated Coconut and Coriander Leaves (Cilantro) and enjoy!
