Sooji ka Dhokla/
Semolina Sevory Steamed CakeHi Friends,
This is the one recipe which i tried several times and always failed to get the right texture. First time i tried it while i was in class Xth. After finishing my board exams in two months summer vacations i tried lots of recipe. In some of them i succeed and some of them went kaput. But slowly by the time i came to know about the importance of proper timing and method to make it. I tried it after a long time and result was so good that my hubby who don't like dhokla liked it so much. I am planning to make it again on Raksha Bandhan. Its a very healthy recipe.
There are few points which you should keep in mind while making dhokla. Keep everything ready with you before you proceed. Curd you use should be sour enough. It will give a smooth soft texture. Mixing Eno/baking soda in the batter slowly and immediately
the batter in very important. You can use coriander or coconut for garnishing but i skipped that, still it was so tasty that my kids and hubby finished it in no time. You can make it for parties as it can be made and stored for few days. You can make it day before the party and store in the fridge. Even it tastes batter next day. So friends try it and enjoy it.
Sour Curd-1 cup
Eno-1 puch (1 tsp
Red Chilly Pdr-1/2 tsp
Salt- as per your taste ( i used 1/2 tsp)
mix it well
add red chilly pdr and salt
mix well and leave it
prepare your steaming vessel by putting a stand in a large kadai or cooker and filling it with water
now grease a pan or plate with oil
After 20 minutes resting time add eno in the batter
see bubbles are appearing, now mix it slowly
tip it in the greased pan
steam it for 20 minute
see the spongy taxture
Now we will make tempering
take 2 tsp oil in a pan
crackle mustered seeds in it
add slitted chilly
add bit of salt
now add 1/2 cup water and let it cool down a bit
squeeze lemon in it
now pour this tempering on steamed dhokla
Ready to serve
Have a bite

- Use sour curd for perfect texture.
- After keeping semolina+curd for resting, prepare your steaming vessel as you need to work fast after adding eno/banking soda in it you have to immediately steam it.
- Don't over whip the batter after adding soda/eno to it. Just mix it slowly to incorporate well.
- Resting time and steaming immediately after adding eno/baking soda is important.
- You can garnish it with coriander, but i was not having in hand.
