KHAMAN DHOKLA RECIPE AND GREEN CHUTNEY

khaman dhokla   
The past two weeks went very busy as kids are at home on vacation. Finally today school reopened and i had time to post one of my favorite snack.  I have tried this a few times and this time i thought of blogging this. I learnt this from here, but she gave the recipe for suji dhokla, but i replace with besan,since i love this khaman dhokla. Check out my Gujarathi Khandvi recipe and khatta dhokla.




Khaman Dhokla recipe

  Preparation Time : 15 mins + standing time 1 hour | Cooking Time : 15 Mins |Serves: 4-5

     Besan | kadala maavu    1 cup
     Curd    1 cup
     Salt  as needed
     Green chili   2
     Turmeric powder  1/4 tsp
     Sugar   1/2 tsp
     Eno fruit salt   1 and 1/2 tsp
     Lemon juice  1 tsp
     Oil   2 tsp 
     Mustard seeds  1/2 tsp
     Water  2 tblsp
     


Method

  • In a wide vessel, add the besan,curd,chopped green chilli, turmeric powder,salt , sugar and lemon juice and mix well without any lumps.
  • Don't add any water to it.
  • The curd will be quite enough to make the paste.

  • Cover it with a lid and keep it aside for 1/2 an hour to 1 hour.
  • I kept for an hour.
  • After an hour, grease a wide mouthed kadai with little oil.
  • Transfer the mixture to it.
  • Just add the ENO FRUIT SALT .
  • Mix well.
  • Keep the steamer hot before adding eno salt to it.

  • The consistency will be like idli batter.
  • Normally after adding Eno salt the mixture will sightly loosen.

  • If u find it very thick,can add 1 or 2 tblsp of water.
  • Steam this mixture for 10 –12 minutes.
  • Check whether it is completely cooked ,by inserting a knife or fork into the vessel.

  • Allow it to cool.
  • After 2- 4 mins, just tilt the vessel fully to a plate .
  • Take it out carefully.

  • When it crackles, pout it over the dhokla.

  • Serve with green chutney.

I DISCARDED THE  MOST OF THE CHILLI AFTER TEMPERING,SINCE MY HUBBY DOESN’T LIKE IT.

      1. You can add baking (cooking)soda to this . But do not add more than 1/2 tsp.

      1. You can add 2 pinches of baking soda but it won't turn out that soft as eno
