Instant Dhokla, Dhokla recipe with full video and step by step pictorial instructions. Dhokla is an authentic Gujarati snack, Gluten-free Vegan snack made using Gram flour.

I have posted Khaman Dhokla recipe in Jeyashris Kitchen many years ago. The one which I posted is not a vegan version. I have added yogurt in that dhokla. This Instant Dhokla recipe, I learnt from my Gujarati friend a few weeks ago. She is the one who taught me the recipe of Bajra Vadi recipe.

I am going to share the recipe of Soft and spongy homemade dhokla recipe. I have tried it a few times at home and every time it turned out very perfect. Do read the post completely before you proceed to make Dhokla.

Can we substitute Baking soda instead of Eno salt in Dhokla– This is the common question asked by many when I posted Rava Idli recipe. Though I have not tried personally, you can use 1 tsp of baking soda for 1 tsp Eno salt. A few of my readers tried it and shared with me that it turned out well.

Notes

  1. Always ensure that the eno salt is active and not very old if it won’t fluff up. 2. Do not steam too long, else dhokla will turn hard.
