BM #68 Day 21 -
When I was running down the list for Bajra recipes, I had a dhokla in mind and I googled for it thinking I wouldn't find it :). But our very own Priya Suresh had it in her space and made my job easier.
I have almost made it to the T and it came out very good. Folks at home lovbe dhoklas and this was not any exception.
Recipe Source here
Bajra Flour 1/2 cup
Gram Flour / Besan / Senagapindi 1/2 cup
Yogurt beaten 1 cup
Ginger-green chili paste 1 tsp (or as needed)
Salt, Sugar and Lime juice 1 tsp each or as needed
Eno fruit Salt 1 tsp
Seasoning (Oil 1 Tbsp, Mustard Seeds 1/2 tsp, Sesame seeds 1 tsp, Cumin seeds 1/2 tsp, Asafotida pinch)
Coriander leaves, Shredded coconut and/or Grated Carrot for garnish
Method Of Preparation -
In a bowl, whisk the yogurt, add in the ginger-green chili paste, salt, sugar and lime juice.
Sieve the bajra flour and besan. Slowly transfer the flours into the yogurt mixture. Mix well until there are no lumps. it should result in a thick batter.
Just before steaming, add the ENO fruit salt, mix gently and pour into a greased steamer plate. [ I poured into 2 steamer plates and hence I got thinner dhoklas.]
Steam for 20 minutes.
While the steamer is cooling down, heat oil in a small pan, add mustard seeds, sesame seeds, cumin seeds and asafoetida.
After the mustard seeds crackle, pour about 2-3 tablespoons of water in the seasoning and pour on to the steamed dhoklas.
Slice it according to requirement and serve with chutney of your choice. I served with Green Chutney.
