Dhokla, a soft and spongy snack from Gujarati is so good that it has become everybody’s favourite and you can find it almost everywhere.
There are various types of dhokla like Khaman dhokla, mixed dal dhokla, nylon dhokla, sandwich dhokla etc but the most commonly made dhokla in my home is rava dhokla. There is no doubt that the taste is the most important factor but another reason for it being frequently made is the ease with which it is made. It gets readied within 5 minutes in microwave and about 10 minutes in steamer.
My kids are so fond of sooji dhokla that I almost make it every week or sometimes twice a week, still they don’t get bored of it.
About two months back, my son went to Canada for his studies. When he was here, I used to ask him to learn some cooking. Though some basic things he knew, but the type of foodie he is, those are insufficient for him. Now he is on his own so keeps on calling me for the recipes or asks me to make video for him.
Last week, he asked me to give sooji dhokla recipe, then I realised that I always make it with estimate and don’t have the written recipe. So this time when I added ingredients to make sooji dhokla, I measured them to have a proper written recipe.
Here is my way of making Sooji Dhokla.
