Guest post: Jagruti Vyas

Hello Friends,

This dhokal is eaten during Hindu fasting when there are very few food choices available.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes

Cooking Time: 25 minutes


1 cup samo Flour
2 tbsp sabudana
1/2 cup yogurt
1 inch ginger grated
1 finely chopped green chili
1 tsp fruit Salt
1 tbsp oil
Salt to taste
Water as required

For Tempering:

2 tbsp Oil
1 tsp Cumin seeds
1 tsp Sesame seeds
1 Green Chili chopped


1. In a mixing bowl, mix together samo powder, sabudana, yogurt and water. Mix well and make a smooth batter, it should be of thick consistency, keep aside for 5 to 6 hours

2. Add green chili, ginger and salt. Mix well

3. Heat steamer or pressure cooker with about 1 1/2 inches of water. Bring it to boil

4. Once water comes to boil, add Eno and 1 tbsp of oil to batter and mix well. The batter will foam up

6. Turn off the heat and remove dhokla plate and let it cool for some time
