These dhoklas are so soft and spongy that the reference to nylon is really apt! What is more, this recipe is also very easy to implement if you follow these simple instructions properly and practice it a bit. The addition of fruit salt to the batter, and water to the tempering, are the two main factors responsible for the super-soft and spongy nature of this dhokla. Temper just before serving, for the perfect “100/100”!

I made khaman dhokla at home for the first time and i am 100% satisfied with this recipe.. They are so soft and much better in taste then what you get from the readymade.. The 1 more good thing is that it is really quick.. It hardly takes 5 minutes to prepare and 10 minutes to steam.. If you see, this farsaan is just ready in 15 minutes..
