You can also make mini patras by using small leaves to make small rolls. Some people like it plain piping hot from the steamer without tempering while some prefer it with the tempering.

Basically, something you can have any time you are hungry! These Gujarati nylon khamman dhokla 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 would like to give you some tips/suggestions to make a perfect nylon khamman dhokla. 1. Add the lemon juice and salt to the dough. As this is a sweet and slightly sour dhokla, we add lemon juice. Alternately you can add citric acid (nimbu ka phool). The lemon juice (or citric acid) and fruit salt create a fizzy reaction which results in soft, spongy khaman. 2. Mix well using a whisk to get a smooth Nylon Khamman Dhokla batter. The batter will have to mixed very well as the sugar needs to dissolve properly. If you want you can keep the batter aside for 10-15 minutes till the sugar has properly dissolved. 3. Grease 175 mm. (7") diameter thali with a little oil. This is an important step because greasing helps the nylon khamman dhokla come out of the plate without breaking or sticking. 4. Just before steaming, add the fruit salt. This will react with the lemon juice to give a fluffy batter. 5. Gently mix the fruit salt in the batter till just mixed. Do not over mix the batter, it should be airy and fluffy like this! 6. Pour the tempering over the prepared dhoklas and spread it evenly. Make sure the dhoklas are warm when you pour the tempering or else they will not soak the water in. Serve nylon khamman dhokla with green chutney.

ghughra recipe | Jamnagari ghughra | vatana na ghughra | green peas ghughra | matar gujiya / karanji | ghughra recipe is a variation to the sweet coconut stuffing in which green peas have been used. Learn how to make vatana na ghughra. Flaky, yet soft coating with a perfectly balanced green peas stuffing, rolled, shaped and fried till crisp is what describes matar gujiya / karanji. This is a common snack made during the festival of Diwali. Try it out and you would make over and over again without a festival or an occasion coming up too! To make ghughra, first make a soft dough by combining maida, melted ghee and salt using enough water. Knead again using the oil till smooth. Keep aside under a wet muslin cloth. Then for the stuffing, heat the oil in a broad non-stick pan and add the cumin seeds and asafoetida. When the seeds crackle, add the green peas and sauté on a medium flame for a few seconds. Sprinkle 1 tbsp water, mix well and cover and cook on a slow flame for 7 minutes, while stirring occasionally. Add the sugar, green chilli paste, ginger paste, coriander, coconut, sesame seeds, lemon juice and salt, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 1 minute. Cool slightly and divide the stuffing into 20 equal portions. Keep aside. Then make the karanji. Divide into 20 portions and roll one portion into a 4” circle, place little stuffing and fold to make a semi-circle. Pinch the edges of the ghughra. Roll and shape all ghughras and deep-fry in hot oil till golden brown. Serve immediately with green chutney. While the vatana na ghughra are typically half-moon shaped, you can also make them in other shapes too, if you wish to! Pinching the gughras is an art which you can master over time. They look pretty if uniformly pinched. However, you can keep them plain edged too if you cannot get a uniform pinched edge at the circumference. These Jamnagari ghughra make tea-time significantly more interesting! Fry the ghughras just before serving as they tend to get cold and soggy after a while. Serve them with green chutney at snack time. You can also serve these green peas ghughra as farsan in a Gujarati thali set menu likePanchkutiyu Shaak, Rasawala Chana, Rotlis, Raiwala Marcha, cutney and Shrikhand. Tips for ghughra. 1. Ensure that the green peas are not boiled and coarsely crushed. You just need to blend them in a mixer for 5 seconds and they will be coarsely crushed. This texture is needed for a good mouthfeel. 2. Cool the mixture before shaping ghughras, else the dough might have cracks due to the steam generated. 3. Deep fry the ghughras on a slow flame so they cook uniformly.

instant khatta dhokla recipe | khatta dhokla using idli batter | white dhokla using idli batter | with 20 amazing images. We have used idli batter to make the instant khatta dhokla recipe. This khatta dhokla using idli batter requires ZERO fermentation and great to use your left over idli batter. So if you have idli for dinner, next day use the idli batter to make white dhokla for breakfast. The ‘khatta’ in the instant khatta dhokla is the dominant flavour of this traditional khatta dhokla and this sourness is brought about by adding a little sour curds. Gujarati’s also call khatta dhokla. Gujaratis and khatta dhokla go synonymous. White dhokla are popular steamed cakes made using rice and urad dal. Also, there are hundreds of variation to the dhokla recipe, here we have made it instantly by using idli batter and skipping the long fermentation hours and waiting. Traditionally there is no tempering made for the safed dhokla but, if you like then heat some oil and temper with mustard seeds and curry leaves and add it to the batter before steaming. Alternatively you can also spread this tempering on the dhokla after steaming. Tips and notes for instant khatta dhokla. 1. Rice, dals, fermented food in general are a bit difficult to digest, hence a little addition of hing will help in aiding digestion. 2. You can make sour curd at home by adding more culture (curd) in milk and letting it ferment for a longer duration at room temperature. If sour curd is not available, add a little lemon juice to make the batter sour. 3. The best part about this quick khatta dhokla is the batter does not require any soaking or fermenting. 4. Just before steaming, sprinkle the fruit salt. After adding the fruit salt, do not let the batter sit idle for a long time or else you won’t get soft, spongy white dhoklas. 5.

Hamari Delhi chaat jaise popular hai, waise hi Gujarat ki chaat bhi lajawab hai. My wife makes khaman, katta dhokla, dabeli, khandvi very often in evening snacks. Amiri khaman is my favourite which she makes for me when khaman dhokla is made. On special occasion Patra bhi banayee jaati hai lunch ya dinner ke saat.
