How to Cook Khaman Dhokla

  1. Beat the yoghurt, then place the gram flour, yogurt, sugar, lemon juice, salt (to taste) and warm water into a large mixing bowl and mix well, making sure there are no lumps. Stir in the bicarbonate of soda and mix well then set aside to ferment for 3-4 hours.
  2. Heat a steamer and grease a cooking bowl. Pour the fermented batter into the bowl and steam cook this for about 8-10 minutes, then remove from the heat. Allow it to cool then cut it into squares about 2" (5cm) square.
  3. Take a small pan and heat the cooking oil. Add the mustard seeds, sesame seeds and green chillies (chopped). Fry these for one minute then remove from the heat. Tip the seeds and chilli over the Khaman Dhokla and evenly spread it. Sprinkle over the freshly shaved coconut and chopped coriander leaves for a perfect breakfast, side dish or snack!

Make sure the mixture is well fermented before steaming. This will ensure that the Dhokla rises and is light and fluffy.
