Batter for buckwheat dhokla for acidity

  1. To make buckwheat dhokla for acidity recipe | no fermentation dhokla | dhokla recipe without fermentation | kuttu dhokla - health snack for acidity | take the washed buckwheat. Buckwheat is a very good source of Iron and good to prevent anaemia. Rich in folate and good food for pregnant women. Buckwheat keeps your heart healthy and high in fibre and diabetic friendly. Buckwheat is a rich plant based source of protein and excellent option for Vegetarians. See here for 13 benefits of buckwheat and why it's good for you.
  2. Add the 1/2 cup sour curds. To make curds sour, I leave out my packaged dahi for 2 hours and they are good to use for the batter. Curd is one of the richest source of proteincalcium and minerals. They help in weight reduction, good for your heart and build immunity. Being low in sodium, it is safe to be eaten by individuals with high blood pressure. The only difference between curds and low fat curds is the fat level. Read the benefits of curds to include in your daily diet.
  3. Add 1/2 cup water to adjust the consistency of the mixture.
  4. Mix well so as to get a uniform mixture.
  5. Cover with a lid and keep aside to soak the batter for 4 to 5 hours. In summer season you may need to soak only for 4 hours, while in winter season the soaking time should be increased to 5 hours and if needed to 6 hours depending on the temperature. This will ensure soft dhoklas as the end result. You can also make the batter and keep it in the fridge overnight, as the sour curd will turn the batter sour if left out.
  6. This is what the soaked batter looks like after soaking.
  7. Mix the soaked batter once with a spoon.
  8. Add 1 teaspoon green chilli paste. We have used 1 tsp as buckwheat is bland in taste. However, you can adjust the quantity of the green chilli paste as per your spice level.
  9. Add 1/4 teaspoon ginger (adrak) paste. Ginger is an effective cure for congestion, sore throatcold and cough. It aids digestion and relieves constipation. Ginger was found as effective as drugs in relieving menstrual pain. Ginger is effective in decreasing the cholesterol levels in patients with high cholesterol. Ginger significantly reduces symptoms of nausea in pregnant ladies. See here for 16 Super Health Benefits of Adrak, Ginger.
  10. Add salt to taste.
  11. Mix the batter well.
