How to make Instant Dhokla?

Gujrati Khaman dhokla or nylon dhokla is a very popular High Tea dish among Indians. A popular and traditional snack recipe made from fermented besan or chickpea flour batter. It basically originates from western India or precisely from Gujarati cuisine. The recipe is a combination of sweet and sour tastes. Dhokla is generally served as an evening snack. However, It can also be served as a morning breakfast recipe.

There are many ways and variants of a simple khaman dhokla recipe. Basically, the traditional dhokla recipe is made by grounding the soaked channa dal which is later kept to ferment overnight. However, this version is an instant version. Moreover, Fermentation is a 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. I am using eno salt for this purpose.

However, 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 a snack.

Finally, I would like to suggest you few more interesting recipes from my blog :
