This dish is made with a batter prepared from chickpeas, urad and rice. It is mostly eaten as a snack but also can be eaten for breakfast. 


It is a source of good fats and is thus considered to be healthy and nutritious. So if you want to make this popular Gujarati dish at home then follow this simple 4-step recipe given below.



Step 1


Combine 1 cup of gram flour, 1 tbsp citric acid, 1 tbsp sugar, a pinch of turmeric and some salt in a bowl to prepare the batter. Add water to achieve a thick consistency. 


Step 2


Mix 1 tbsp of baking powder with some water and add this to the batter.




Step 3


Fill the bottom part of the steamer with water and let it come to a boil. Grease the top part with some oil to prevent the dhoklas from sticking to the surface. Pour the batter into the steaming tin and steam for 15 minutes.
