            How to make instent dhokla

Gujrati kamman dhokla or nylon dhokla is a very popular High Tea dish among Indians. A popular and a traditional snack recipe made from fermented besan or chickpea flour batter. it basically originates from western india or precisely from the gujarati cuisine. the recipe is a combination of sweet and sour taste, which is generally served as a snack but can also be served as morning breakfast recipe.

There are many ways and variants of simple khaman dhokla recipe, but this recipe is dedicated to instant version. basically, the traditional dhokla recipe is made with grounding the soaked channa dal which is later keep to ferment overnight. fermentation  is little time-consuming and requires a lot of planning and preparation in advance. to mitigate this, there are several instant version which is achieved by artificially fermenting. in this recipe, i have used eno fruit salt which helps the batter to rise and achieve the same texture and sponginess. i personally like the instant variation as i can prepare it whenever i get that craving for the snack.
