Rava besan dhokla | suji besan dhokla | instant dhokla | dhokla chutney

Dhokla is a traditional and all-time favorite Gujarati snack recipe. In this recipe, I made instant dhokla with besan (gram flour), rava, sour curd, and regular spices. It is a combination of sweet and sour taste, which is generally served as a snack but can also be served as a morning breakfast recipe or a sudden guest at home. It is easy to cook and gets ready in less than 30 minutes and is a foolproof recipe for soft and spongy dhokla. Do try this!

The key to making rava besan dhokla at home are
  • Firstly, the quantity of besan(gram flour), rava, and sour curd should be equal in dhokla batter. also, use a fine variety of rava for dhokla batter.
  • Dhokla batter should be medium thick and pouring consistency. Also, whisk the dhokla batter well so air particles incorporate it and dhokla become soft and spongy dhokla.
  • I have added Eno fruit salt which can be easily replaced with baking soda if you wish to. But I would heavily recommend skipping turmeric as it would react with baking soda to yield a pink color.
  • I steamed the dhokla in kadai and boiled water before placing the dhokla plate in it. preheating steamer and kadai helps to make spongy dhokla.
  • Steam dhokla for 15 min on high-medium flame.
