Khaman dhokla, a famous snack sold in every street of Gujarat, it is no longer restricted to that region -- it is readily available in every part of the country. People love these yummy dhoklas as a breakfast, snack or as a farsan (savoury accompaniment) in the lunch or dinner menu.


We made it in a jiffy using besan, but it can also be made by soaking and grinding chana dal. These versatile dhoklas can be steamed in a traditional dhokla steamer or in a microwave oven.



These dhoklas can be used to make variants like Amiri Khaman , Rasawala Dhokla and Pav Bhaji Dhokla .

Method
  1. Combine the besan, semolina, sugar, ginger-green chilli paste, lemon juice and salt with approx. ¾ cup of water in a deep bowl and mix well using a whisk to get a smooth batter.
  2. Just before steaming, add the fruit salt and mix lightly.
  3. Pour the mixture immediately to a greased 175 mm. (7") diameter thali and spread evenly by rotating the thali clockwise.
  4. Steam in a steamer for 10 to 12 minutes or till the dhoklas are cooked. Keep aside.
  5. Heat the oil in a small non-stick pan and add the mustard seeds.

  7. Remove from the flame, add ½ cup of water and wait for 5 minutes or till the water is absorbed completely.
  8. Pour the tempering over the prepared dhoklas and spread it evenly.
