Instant Dhokla

Khaman DhoklaWondering to cook something light and different? Why not go for a steamed less fat dish of dhokla. Made of besan and suji with curd, its a easy to make and lovely to eat dish for all the diet conscious food lovers. The tempting yellow color topped with black mustard seeds and green chillies, its all together a colorful dish. Adding some fresh coriander leaves gives it a more presentable look.

I decided of making this instant dhokla in our breakfast when we were thinking of clubbing something light with Bread PohaAnd it was really really appreciated when served. My husband went crazy about it and really liked the idea.

Thus sharing the same with you, a Gujrati dhokla made easy to be cooked!
