Method - How to make Instant Dhokla

Take a bowl and put gram flour, sooji, turmeric powder, whisked curd, salt and water in it. Mix all the ingredients well and make sure that lumps are not formed in the batter. Whisk the mixture well.

Dhokla is made from steam. Now take a cooker and put 2 glass of water in it. Keep the cooker on the stove. Take a separator or any other utensil which can be kept into the cooker. Grease the separator.

Add eno powder into the mixture and whisk it well. Pour the mixture into the separator. Now keep a forged stand or any plate into the cooker before placing the separator in the cooker so it doesn't touch the bottom of the cooker. Close the lid of the cooker and remove the whistle from it.  Within 20 minutes the dhokla will get ready. To check whether it is properly baked or not, put a fork or a tooth pick into the dhokla. If it comes out clean this means that the dhokla is ready.

Take out the separator from the cooker and let it cool down. Once the dhokla cools down take it out on a plate with the help of a knife and cut it into pieces of desired shape and size.

For Tampering: Take a small pan and heat 1 table spoon oil in it. Put mustard seeds and let it splutter. Once the mustard seeds gets tampered add green chilli and 1 small cup water. After this add sugar and salt into the mixture and turn off the flame once it starts to boil. Add lemon juice into this mixture and pour this curry over each and every dhokla with the help of a spoon. Your dhokla is ready.
