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.
