First time I had Dhokla at my friend's place and liked it a lot. Then next week only I tried, and it came out perfect. Even my husband loved it.

Method:

  1. Mix the besan, semolina, sugar, ginger-green chilli paste, lemon juice and salt along with little water (approximately ¾ cup) in a bowl and mix well to get a smooth and thick batter.
  2. Add the fruit salt to the batter and mix gently.
  3. Pour the batter immediately into a greased thali( i use the baking tray and steam in wide bottom vessel) and spread evenly by rotating the thali clockwise.
  4. Steam in a steamer for 12 to 15 minutes or till the dhoklas are cooked.
  5. Heat 3 tsp of oil in a small pan and add the mustard seeds.
  6. When the seeds crackle, add green chillies, asafoetida and curry leaves, mix well and saute on a medium flame for a few seconds.
  7. Remove from the flame and add 1½ tbsp of water and mix well.

To steam dhokla you can use wide bottom kadai/pan. For this you just have to place thali /tray on  inverted steel bowl.
