DHOKLA


Ingredients



Rawa(semolina)- 2 cups


Yoghurt- 1 cup


G.chillies- 1 or 2 ea( finely chopped)


Ginger- 1 tsp ( grated)


Water- 1 cup


Turmeric powder- 1/2 tsp


Deseeded green chillies- 2 ea ( sliced)


Mustard seed- 1 tsp


Sesame seed- 2 tsp


Cilantro- for garnishing


Salt- 1 tsp


ENO salt- 2 tsp


Oil- 2 tbsp + 1 tbsp


Method


Take a bowl add yoghurt, chopped green chillies, turmeric powder & salt to mix well.

Take a big bowl add rawa , 2 tbsp oil to mix well & add yoghurt mixture.

Add with water & make a mild thick batter. Add in the ENO salt & Mix well which helps in raising the batter when it is rested.

I divided the batter to equal potions, one was tried steaming in Microwave oven & the other portion was pressure cooked to try out which comes better.
Well to be honest the portion made by pressure cooking was more softer than the one micro waved.


To cook in the microwave oven place the mix in the bowl& cook it for 4-5 mins .


In the pressure cooker keep it 5 - 6 mins ( made it as we do for idlis).



Cut into equal squares.



Heat oil in a pan Temper with mustard seed, sesame seed, deseeded sliced green chillies & top it up on the Dhokla.

Finish with cilantro to garnish.

  15. Your Rava dhokla looks very similar to the Besan Dhokla. I do not add Turmeric in my Rava dhokla.
