  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.

Mamtha Sunil Kumar MAMTHA SUNIL KUMAR'S HOT TIP:
Make sure the mixture is well fermented before steaming. This will ensure that the Dhokla rises and is light and fluffy.
