Khaman Dhokla

Another favourite snack. I learnt to prepare Khaman Dhokla in the microwave at the 'Microwave Cooking Class', that I attended last year. This is one of the many yummy and quick recipes that I got to learn there.

Ingredients

Gramflour (besan) - 2 cups
Yogurt - 1 cup
Green chillies (chopped) - 1 tbsp.
Ginger (chopped) - 1 tbsp.
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp.
Salt as per taste
Soda bi-carbonate (baking soda) - 1 tsp.
Oil - 2 tbsp.
Lemon juice - 0f 1 lemon

For tempering:

Oil - 1 tsp.
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp.
Green chillies - 4-5
Curry leaves - few
Water - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 1/2 tsp.

For garnishing:

Grated fresh coconut - 1/2 cup
Chopped coriander leaves

Preparation
  • Take gramflour in a bowl. Add beaten yogurt and warm water. Whisk nicely so that no lumps remain. The mixture should be of a slightly thick consistency. Add salt and leave it covered to ferment for three to four hours.
  • Grind green chillies and ginger into a paste.
  • When the gramflour and yogurt mixture has fermented, add ground chillies and ginger. Add turmeric powder and check seasoning.
  • rease dhokla mould with a little oil. In a small bowl take baking soda, one teaspoon of oil and lemon juice. Mix and add to the gramflour mixture.
  • Pour the batter into the greased mould and cook in MICRO HI mode for 4-5 minutes. Take out from microwave oven.
  • In a small microwave proof bowl put oil and all the ingredients for tempering. Cook in MICRO HI mode for 2 minutes. Add 1/2 cup water and sugar and further cook in MIRCO HI mode for 1 minute.
  • Immediately pour over the dhokla.
  • Garnish with fresh grated coconut and coriander leaves. Serve.
