Vatidal na instant khaman dhokla | instant surti khaman dhokla |instant khaman dhokla

khaman dhokla is all time favorite Gujarati snack. Typically, vati dal na dhokla recipe is prepared from fermented batter, but this recipe I share the instant dhokla recipe which is prepared from coarse gram flour, sour buttermilk, 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 as a sudden guest at home.

It is an easy and foolproof recipe and I also share some tips for soft and spongy instant vatidal khaman dhokla on the first attempt. Do try this!

The key to making soft vatidal na instant khaman dhokla at home are
  • Firstly, I made vatidal na instant khaman with slightly coarse gram flour. t basically helps to get the crumbly texture of dhokla as compared to the fine besan flour.
  • Khaman Dhokla batter should be medium thick and pouring consistency. Also, whisk the dhokla batter well so air particles incorporate in it and dhokla become soft and spongy.
  • 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.
  • steam dhokla on a medium-high flame for 15 minutes or till it gets cooked completely. Do not steam dhokla on low flame.
  • Lastly, instant khaman dhokla tastes great when serve with green dhokla chutney.
