Khaman dhokla, commonly known as Dhokla, is a popular and a traditional snack made from fermented besan also known as gram flour or channa dal flour. These savory steamed cakes which are really light and fluffy originate from western india or precisely from the gujarati cuisine. Dhokla with its exquisite texture and appetising flavour is an all-time favourite usually served as a teatime snack or ‘farsan‘ as they say in Gujarati with a variety of sweet and spicy chutney. The traditional dhokla recipe requires a tedious, overnight fermentation process to make the batter airy, and spongy. But with this instant method it can be ready within an hour. Sprinkle some cilantro and / or coconut shreds and serve it with chutney. It’s sure to tantalize your taste buds as it’s a bit sweet, savory and tangy with a very mild hint of heat from the chillies.
