The key to making instant masala dhokla at home are
  • Use semolina or fine rava for instant dhokla batter.
  • You can use curd or buttermilk to soak rava into the batter. I soaked it in water and use nimbu na phool (citric acid) instead of curd or buttermilk.
  • Dhokla batter should be slightly thick and pouring consistency.
  • Steam dhokla on tawa for 12-15 min on medium-high flame.
