Rava(Sooji) Dhokla

Posted By Vardhini On December 29, 2011 @ 9:00 pm In Blogging Marathon,Breakfast,Gallery,Healthy Recipes,Indian,Quick & Easy,Under 30 minutes | 2 Comments

Last day of the blogging marathon and I thoroughly enjoyed posting my favorite dishes. As I was shortlisting the recipes for this marathon I came across the “Tiffin Ideas”  book by Mallika Badrinath. I am sure this book has been lying in the cabinet for years and thanks to blogging, I am finally taking a look at the overflowing collection of cookbooks :) . I had dhokla on my list and even bought the ENO fruit salt a few months ago. So I was pleasantly surprised to see this dhokla listed under ‘Idli varieties”. It is very easy to make and tasted great. It was spongy and we loved it. Recipe from Tiffin Ideas – Mallika Badrinath book.

Add salt.

Add curd (yogurt).

Mix together.

Mix oil and eno (fruit salt) together.

Add the eno+salt mixture to the prepared  batter.

Mix well and steam immediately. You can see it beginning to froth up. Steam the dhokla’s for say 10 minutes. (similar to idli)

Steamed dhokla.

Sprinkle some red chilly powder.

Do the tadka. Heat oil and splutter mustard seeds. Add urad dal, curry leaves and chopped green chillies.

When the dal turns brown, add the tadka to the dhokla and slice into pieces.

Tasty dhokla ready. This is a quick dish which can be had at any time of day. Coconut-Pottukadalai chutney is a good accompaniment to this.

Enjoy!
