There are different type of Dhokla’s which can be prepared in different variations like,

RECIPE NOTE :

  • Boil the water in the steamer first and then keep the dhoklas for steaming.
  • Simple trick to a fluffy dhokla is that beat the batter well. The more you beat the batter; more air is incorporated in the batter, resulting in soft-spongy dhokla’s. Just remember to beat the batter before adding soda.
  • After adding baking soda, don’t let the batter sit for a long while. Steam it right away.
  • Steam for 10-15 minutes only don’t over cook or else the dhokla’s would become hard and dry.
