Although several ready mixes are available to do the job quickly, these cannot match the taste of traditional Khatta Dhokla made with a homemade batter.
Here, we show you how to make authentic Khatta Dhokla using a batter of rice and urad. Seasoned with black pepper and chilli powder, this steamed Gujarati snack is super tasty and amazingly soft too. Serve it with Green Cutney as a starter or as an evening snack .
