Besan Ka Dhokla

Besan Ka Dhokla

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup besan ( gram flour)
  • 1/4 cup yoghurt
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tsp Ginger paste
  • 1 tsp Green chilli paste
  • 1 tsp Citric acid or vinegar
  • Water to mix batter
  • 1 tsp Baking soda,sifted
  • 1/2 tsp Red chilli powder
  • 1 tsp Rye( mustard seeds), roasted
  • 5-10 leaves Kadhi patta, roasted
  • 1/2 tbsp Green coriander, chopped
  • 1 round tin (8”), slightly greased
  • A vessel to steam, that will take the tin
  • A cloth to cover the steamer before putting the lid on

Method:

  • Mix together the besan, yoghurt, salt, ginger, chilli paste, and the citric acid or vinegar.
  • Add enough water to make a paste of dropping consistency. Leave for about one hour( for best results).
  • Get the steamer and tin ready. Gently mix in the soda( it starts becoming spongy as you mix), and transfer immediately to the greased tin.
  • Sprinkle the red chilli powder, rye and kadhi patta. Place in the steamer, cover the streamer tin ( not the baking tin) with the cloth and then fit the lid in.
  • Steam for 20 minutes and remove from vessel. When cool enough, cut into pieces and serve garnished with green coriander.
