Microwave Makai ka Dhokla ~ Healthy Breakfast

>>  Tuesday, August 5, 2014

For the third day it had to be a quick one as I was least prepared for unexpected events that can happen. The first two versions were prepared last week and I couldn't prepare the third one as everybody felt one Dhokla for a day was more than enough, however much we liked it. With the week becoming very hectic, I thought I would have time to make it just before the day and I was wrong.

I missed my regular posting time and made it late last night and that too in Microwave for a quicker version. The Dhokla tasted great so I would be making it again in the regular method as well. Since it was going to be a quick version, I steamed it in small bowls to be individual servings. You can follow the regular method of steaming it in a bigger plate and slicing it down.

The fresh sweet corn nibbles add to the taste and this surely is a great snack for the kids.

How to make Makai Ka Dhokla

Microwave version sounds very easy and quick when compared to the steamed one, loving that beautiful deep yellowish colour of the dhoklas.

this sounds wonderful Valli. MW makes it even more interesting

Have to try these soon. The MW idea makes it more appealing. Valli, is makai flour same as the corn flour?

Srivalli August 12, 2014 at 10:25 AM  

Suma, Makai flour is corn meal or corn flour which is yellow in colour. And not the Corn flour (known as corn starch in US) that is white and use as a thickening agent.
