Minty - Semolina Dhokla (Steamed Cake - Gujarati Style)

            This is a classic Gujarati evening snack to be relished with tea / coffee. It can also be served as a light breakfast along with green chutney. I made a twist to the usual Dhokla recipe by adding some chopped mint leaves and almond powder to enhance the flavour.

           Healthy and nutritious, these can be a perfect lunch box meal too. At the same time, sumptuous and filling, these steamed and spongy treats can do wonders to your party menu.      

  • 1/2 cup sooji / semolina
  • 2 tbsp. yoghurt
  • 1 tbsp. almond powder (opt)
  • 1/2 cup mint leaves, chopped
  • salt to taste
  • 1/4 tsp. turmeric powder
  • 1" ginger, grated
  • 1 green chilies, chopped finely
  • pinch of asafoetida
  • 1/2 tsp. roasred cumin powder
  • 1 tbsp. oil
  • 1 tsp. eno fruit salt


  • 1 tbsp. oil
  • 1 tsp. sesame seeds
  • 1/2 tsp. mustard seeds
  • 1/2 tsp. chili flakes
  • coriander leaves to garnish

          In a bowl, mix together all the above mentioned ingredients (from sooji  -  1 tbsp. oil) with required quantity of water into a smooth batter of pouring consistency.

          Keep aside for 30 minutes. Just before steaming, add the eno salt and mix well. Transfer the contents to a greased container and steam for 15-17 minutes. When cool, cut into pieces of desired shapes.

          Heat oil in a pan and temper with mustard seeds. After it stops spluttering, switch off the gas and add the sesame seeds and chili flakes. Stir and add 2 tbsp. water. Pour this tempering over the dhoklas and serve.
