Microwave Dhokla


Gram Flour (Besan) - 1 1/2 cup
Turmeric Powder - 1 pinch
Green Chilli Paste - 1 tsp
Ginger Paste - 1 tsp
Salt - 1 tsp
Sugar - 1 tsp (optional)
Soda bi-carb - 1 pinch
Lemon Juice - 2 tsp
Water - 1 cup
Mustard Seed - 1 tsp
Green Chillies (slit along the longer side) - 4-5
Water - 3/4 cup
Sugar - 1 tbsp


Mix besan, water (1 cup), 1 tsp oil, turmeric powder, salt, sugar, chilli paste, ginger paste to a smooth batter. (Use the food processor or mixie. It is easier) Add soda bi-carb to the batter and pour lemon juice and beat well for a few seconds. Pour this mixture to a greased (with oil) flat dish. Microwave for 6 minutes.

To temper, microwave oil, green chillies, mustard seeds, water (3/4 cup) for around 4 minutes. Pour over the dhokla and wait for 1/2 hour for the dhokla to absorb it and become soft. Cut into 1" pieces (I used an ice cream scooper) and sprinkle chopped coriander.

Dhokla is ready and Yummy!!!
