Khaman dhokla, a famous snack sold in every street of Gujarat, it is no longer restricted to that region -- it is readily available in every part of the country. People love these yummy dhoklas as a breakfast, snack or as a farsan (savoury accompaniment) in the lunch or dinner menu.

We made it in a jiffy using besan, but it can also be made by soaking and grinding chana dal. These versatile dhoklas can be steamed in a traditional dhokla steamer or in a microwave oven.

These dhoklas can be used to make variants like Amiri Khaman , Rasawala Dhokla and Pav Bhaji Dhokla .

Tarla Dalal    Hi Priyanka, Make sure once you have put the fruit salt in the batter, put the vessel immediately for steaming.. and also while it is steaming, the water needs to be very hot. Try this recipe once again.. and give us your feedback..
