WHAT IS DHOKLA?
Dhokla a favorite Indian snack originates from the Indian state of Gujarat (western state of India). Among many variations of dhokla, the two most popular ones are – Khaman (made with chickpea flour), and the other one is Rava dhokla (made with semolina).
Both the varieties are equally relished and can be prepared in less than 30 minutes. It’s quick, simple and makes an excellent snack for tiffin recipe!
Now onto the recipe!
This Instant rawa dhokla is pretty similar to the already shared Khaman dhokla recipe. It requires –
- no fermentation,
- no soaking
- or grinding.
An easy one-bowl recipe where you combine all the ingredients in a bowl, mix and steam as directed. If you don’t have a liking for ginger or green chilies, feel free to leave that out, this will not harm the recipe.
Though it’s a quick and instant make, you will still love its soft and spongy texture. It’s sooooo good and tastes incredible – sweet and sour at the same time. It tastes sour because of the flavor imparted by its main ingredient – sour curd. That’s why Rawa dhokla is also referred to as khatta (sour) dhokla.
Essential tips and suggestions for a perfect Instant rava dhokla recipe!
- Hands down – eno gives the best results.
- Baking soda can be used as an alternative to eno, but results may vary.
- Other substitute to eno = citric acid + lemon juice + water +curd + 1 teaspoon of cream of tartar + 3-4 hours of fermentation. Results will not be the same as shown above, but dhokla will turn out to be light and moist.
This is a make-ahead recipe. Just steam the dhokla ahead of time, add tempering and set it aside. When ready to serve, warm it up in a microwave and serve hot with chutney of your choice.
