Khaman dhokla recipe and green chutney

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.

  • 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.
