Gujarati breakfast recipes made in steamer
Makai ka Dhokla
A cup of masala chai with fluffy dhoklas is indeed an ideal Gujarati breakfast. Khatta Dhokla, an all-time favourite snack made by fermenting a mix of rice flour and urad dal in curd has a tempting sourness. Serve it with peppy green chutney and spicy garlic chutney or simply sprinkle the dhokla thali with chili powder or pepper powder before steaming and enjoy them as it is! If you are looking for a quick fix then try steaming dhoklas with readymade batter. Instead of rice, you can use dals or oats. You can fortify the batter with the addition of chopped leafy vegetables. Also, a simple tempering of mustard seeds, curry leaves and asafetida enhances the taste. Here is a list of some of my favorite dhokla recipes :
1. Mag Na Dhokla
2. Chola Dal Dhokla
3. Makai ka Dhokla
Muthiya and Patra are other Gujarati delights that are steamed and tempered. Muthiya is generally made by combining together a myriad of flour, vegetables and spices & shaping them into cylindrical rolls. They are quite nourishing and delicious. Palak Methi Muthia, Mooli Muthia, Karela Muthias are some variants that make a very satiating snack.
