Soya khaman dhokla brings a healthy twist to the traditional favourite by combining soya flour with the gram flour used to make the batter. This peps up the iron content of this desi snack. Remember that the consistency of the batter and perfection in tempering are two keys to the success of any dhokla, so pay attention to these aspects.

Ingredients


For The Batter
3/4 cup besan (bengal gram flour)
1/4 cup soya flour
1 1/2 tbsp semolina (rava)
1/2 tsp citric acid (nimbu ka phool)
3 1/2 tsp sugar
1 tsp ginger-green chilli paste
1 1/2 tsp fruit salt
salt to taste

For The Tempering
1/2 tsp mustard seeds ( rai / sarson)
1/2 tsp sesame seeds (til)
2 green chillies , chopped
a pinch of asafoetida (hing)
2 tsp oil

For The Garnish
1 tbsp chopped coriander (dhania)

For Serving
nutritious green chutney

Method
  1. Mix together all the ingredients for the batter, except the fruit salt, using enough water to make a thick batter.
  2. Add in the fruit salt, sprinkle a little water over the fruit salt and mix well. The mixture will rise immediately.
  3. When the mixture rises, pour it into a greased thali and steam for about 10 minutes.
  4. For the tempering, heat the oil in a small pan and add the mustard seeds, sesame seeds, green chillies and asafoetida. When the mustard seeds crackle, add 1 tablespoon of water and pour this over the steamed dhoklas.
  5. Cut into pieces and serve hot with nutritious green chutney.

Tips
  1. You can use 1 teaspoon of lemon juice instead of the citric acid crystals.
  2. Keep the steamer hot and only then add the fruit salt into the batter.
