Sooji / Semolina Dhokla

          Dhokla is a traditional Gujarati snack that can be prepared with either gram flour or semolina. This is the latter version. These simple, easy and healthy to make steamed delicacy are just perfect as evening tea-time snacks or for breakfast. Enjoy them as it is or with some green chutney as accompaniment. They are not only wholesome but can be packed as a lunch box meal too. 


Dhokla - 

  • 1/2 cup sooji / semolina
  • 1 cup yoghurt
  • 2 tbsp. oil
  • 1 tsp. ginger-green chili paste
  • salt to taste
  • 1/4 tsps. turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. roasted cumin powder
  • 1 tsp. eno fruit salt

Tempering - 

  • 1 tbsp. oil
  • 1/2 tsp. mustard seeds
  • 1/4 tsp. asafoetida
  • 1 sprig curry leaves
  • 1/2 tsp. red chili powder (opt)

Garnishing - 

  • 1 tsp. coriander leaves, chopped
  • 1 tsp. fresh grated coconut

          In a large bowl, mix together all the ingredients (except eno fruit salt) mentioned under Dhokla. Add required quantity of water and set aside for 10 minutes. 

          Add more water if required to form a batter of pouring consistency. Be sure that there are no lumps. 

          Just before steaming, add the eno fruit salt and give it a stir. Pour into a greased container / plate and steam for 15-20 minutes on a medium to low flame. Set aside to cool and then flip it on a serving dish. Cut into pieces as desired. 

           Heat oil in a pan and temper with mustard seeds. After it stops spluttering, add rest of the ingredients and switch off the flame.

           Pour this tempering over the prepared dhokla. Serve, garnished with chopped coriander leaves and fresh grated coconut.
