The Khaman Dhokla is an all-time favourite Gujarati snack that is served with peppy green chutney at tea time. It has an exquisite texture and appetizing flavour, but is surprisingly easy to make, especially this version that is made in the microwave oven.

A batter of besan and rava is cooked into fluffy dhoklas, which are tempered traditionally to get an aromatic and tasty snack. Citric acid and fruit salt added to the batter enable you to cook the dhoklas quickly and easily in the microwave oven without requiring fermentation or a long duration of steaming. You can enjoy the Quick Microwave Khaman Dhokla any day you wish to, or even serve it to a sudden guest, as it will be ready in a jiffy!
