Instant Dhokla in Microwave


To make batter
1 cup – Besan / gram flour
½ cup – Thick and unsweetened curd
¼ cup Water
1 Tbsp Sugar
1 Tbsp Oil
1 pinch Turmeric powder
¼ Tsp Salt
1 Tbsp finely chopped green chilli
1 Tsp ENO or fruit salt
(I used lemon flavor. If you want use blue color(regular) ENO pocket)
1 Tsp ginger paste

For Seasoning
1 Tsp mustard seeds
4 Green chilli slits
10-15 Curry leaves
2 Tsp Sugar
2 Tsp Coriander leaves
1 cup water for seasoning


For dhokla
  1. In a bowl, add gram flour, curd and ¼ cup water (half quantity of water). Mix it well for 4 mins.
  2. The batter should be without lumps.
  3. Add the turmeric, ginger, salt and green chillies. Mix well.
  4. Add sugar and mix well. Add oil and mix well. Batter is ready.
  5. Grease the dish. Now add ENO to the batter and mix it well. After adding ENO immediately transfer the batter to the pan. Fill up to 3/4 in the pan.
  6. Place it in microwave for 4 minutes on high power.  Take it out from the oven.
  7. Slice into square shape before seasoning.

For seasoning
  1. Heat oil in a pan add mustard seeds and allow it to splutter.
  2. Add green chillies, curry leaves and coriander leaves. Mix well.
  3. Add a cup of water, sugar and boil for 3 minutes.
  4. Remove from the stove. Pour over the sliced dhokla. Keep it aside for 10 minutes. All water should be absorbed by the pieces. It gives the good taste. Serve it.
