Quick Mint Dhokla

Quick Mint Dhokla

Posted 2015-02-23 by BKfollow

Dhokla is a staple food in an Indian state of Gujarat. The recipe is very simple and involves making a batter out of either gram flour or lentils. The batter is then steamed. It can be served as a breakfast or as a main course. There are a lot of variations possible in dhokla and the recipe that I have today is a very quick one with least number of ingredients required. Gram flour is gluten free and hence it is a healthy option for a lot of people.

Preparation Time: 10-15 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Makes: 6-8 pieces

1 cup chickpea flour, also known as gram flour or besan in Hindi.
3/4 cup of mint puree mixed with water.
Salt as per taste
1/2 tsp fruit salt/eno

  • Measure gram flour and mint puree. The puree can be easily prepared by blending mint leaves in a blender. The idea is to have some water in the puree so that it is easy to mix the gram flour in it and make a paste.

  • Mix them both. Add the mint puree slowly and keep mixing with a spoon. Make sure that the batter is not too runny and has a good consistency. If the batter is too runny, it will not result in good dhokla. Please see the image below for consistency.

  • Mix salt.

  • Meanwhile, heat water and prepare it for steaming the dhokla batter.

  • Just before you are ready to steam the batter, mix eno or fruit salt well in the batter and transfer the mix to a plate in which you are going to steam dhokla. I have used a small round steel plate here.

  • Don't add too much fruit salt as it will spoil the taste. So, it is better to stick with just half a teaspoon and add it only when you are ready to steam the batter.

  • Let the batter steam for at least 7-10 minutes. Check with a toothpick or fork to see if it is done. The toothpick/fork should come out clean with no batter sticking to it.

  • Cut the dhokla into small square pieces and serve it with Coconut or any chutney of your choice.
