Rava Dhokla


An incredible recipe from Gujrat made with a jiffy mix of semolina(rava), yogurt, green chilies, ginger and turmeric. I found this recipe online, but I have made few variations to this recipe by adding ginger and turmeric. Adding ginger to this recipe boosted the flavors and the light yellow color from turmeric make this dhokla very appealing.

Ingredients

For the batter-
1 cup Upma rava (semolina)
1 cup Yogurt, beaten
1/4 cup Water
1/2 tsp Green chili paste
1/2 tsp Ginger paste
1/4 tsp Turmeric powder
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Fruit salt

For seasoning-
3 tsp oil
1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
1/2 tsp Cumin seeds
Few sprigs of Cilantro, finely chopped
Few sprigs of Curry leaves

Method

  • Roast rava on a flat pan for 2-3 minutes. Let it cool
  • Mix together rava, yogurt, water, green chili paste, ginger paste, turmeric powder, salt and fruit salt. Set aside for 10 minutes until rava absorbs all the moisture from yogurt
  • Pour the batter on a greased pan and steam for 12 minutes
  • Let it cool for 2 minutes. Dip knife in cold water and cut the dhokla 
  • In a pan, heat oil. Add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, cilantro and curry leaves. When it starts to sizzle, pour the seasoning on dhokla
  • Serve hot
