Instant Dhokla in 3 Minutes | Microwave Dhokla

>>  Thursday, September 27, 2012

I guess the entire post took me about 10 minutes from the start to end, with cooking time involved, plus uploading the pictures. You can't get a better instant dhokla in place.

For the all the dhokla fear one has, from this recipe to this current one, it depends on how you view it! When I had announced Khaman Dhokla for ICC years back, I never knew I will again be making an instant one for the same. Though the taste is not exactly as spongy as you get with the regular ones, this dhokla steamed in microwave oven, still tastes great.

I was very late for my third day post and all I had was just about 10 mins. Will surely be improvising on the texture to get that spongy taste as well. Meanwhile you can enjoy what's on plate today.
Though it looked like we are going to have a long week off for the Kids vacation, it's almost close to the school reopening. Both the boys keep counting how many days have gone in and plan what next to play. It's surprises that days simply pass off like that!

When I was making this in the morning, all of them were so intrigued and wanted to know what it was and how it was called! They were making fun on hearing Dhokla.

Microwave instant Dhokla in 3 Minutes

Fried Gram Flour / Besan - 1 cup
Semolina / Rava - 2 tbsp
Salt to Taste
Turmeric powder a pinch
Fruit Salt - 1 tsp
Green Chili paste - 1/2 tsp
Water - 3/4 cup

For Tempering:

Oil - 1 tbsp
Mustard Seeds. Urad dal - 1/4 tso
Curry leaves
Coriander leaves
Green Chilies - 1 long
Sesame Seeds - 1/2 tsp
Lemon juice - 2 tsp
Water - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 1 tsp

For Making the Dhokla

In a bowl, take all ingredients except water and mix well. Slowly add water and gently stir in to mix into a lump less batter.

You will see that the batter will rise immediately. Pour this into a greased mw safe flat bowl and steam in microwave mode for 3 mins. Let it rest for a min.

To make sure the dhokla is cooked, insert a knife and see if it's done.

In another bowl, mix the lemon juice, sugar and water and pour this over the dhoklas. Let it sit for a min for the syrup to be adsorbed.

For tempering

Heat oil and add mustard, urad dal, sesame seeds, curry leaves, chopped green chilies, saute for a min and pour over the dhokla.

Cut into pieces and serve hot

I make dhokla often but am always wary about the results , this is probably as good or tough as cake....i have tried the microwave version but in much smaller quantity

when you said steam in microwave mode , did u mean using the microwave safe idli / dhokla stand that holds water at the base? I used it once for idlis and loved them when they were hot..but later they became pretty hard as they cooled down...I guess i shud give a try rather than chatting here :) ur dhokla looks super tempting
