The ‘khatta’ in the name is the dominant flavour of this dhokla, and this sourness is brought about by adding a little sour curds. Although dhoklas taste good at room temperature too, serve them hot with green chutney and tea for a classic and complete package!

It's Khatta and a classic Gujrati Dhokla. Have it often with dinner or as a morning breakfast. Goes well in the morning as it could be slightly on the high cal side and will be absorbed quickly in the morning due to a higher metabolic rate at that time.
