    Comment list



    This recipe has a couple of very big flaws. First of all....Dhokla is not a North Indian recipe. It is Gujarati which makes it a west Indian recipe. Also a very big mistake in the preparation procedure: After grinding the dals to a smooth paste add the curd and keep it overnight. This allows the dough to ferment and gives the dhola an added lightness and its typical tangy taste. The recipes usually made in Gujarati homes calls for equal parts by volume of chana dal, rice, moong dal and urad dal. Take care not to heat up the mix while grinding it in the mixer. That tends to cook the urad dal and the dhokla wont become fluffy after cooking. While grinding, try and add as little water as possible. Thicker the dough, the better it tends to rise and hold its shape.
