Is Khaman Dhokla healthy?

Yes, khaman dhokla is healthy but diabetics need to be careful. Khaman dhokla is made mainly of besan, rava, little sugar and Indian spices.

Let's understand the Ingredients.

Besan : Besan has more good fat than whole wheat flour and also more protein content. Rich in complex carbohydrates and with a low glycemic index, besan is good for diabetics too. See detailed benefits of besan and why it's good for you. 

What's the problem?

Rava (semolina) :  What's good? Semolina is a fairly good source of Magnesium and phosphorus which is necessary to keep our nervous system healthy and working. What's the issue? Fibre is one key nutrient for weight loss and semolina is devoid of it. Semolina is not suitable for diabetics. 

Is khaman dhokla safe for diabetics, heart and overweight individuals?

Yes, nylon khaman dhokla is healthy but cut the sugar used. Removing the sugar the recipe will yet taste good. BUT rava is also an issue.
