Dhokla

Ingredients
Besan/Kadalai maavu -1cup
Curd-1/2cup
Water-1/2cup
Turmeric powder-1/8teaspoon
Sugar-1teaspoon
Eno fruit Salt-1/2teaspoon

To grind
2"piece of ginger
Green chillies-2

To temper
Oil-1tablespoon
Mustard seeds-1/2teaspoon
Sesame seeds-1tablespoon
Green Chilly-1
Few curry leaves

To garnish
Fresh coconut-11/2tablespoons
Chopped coriander leaves-1tablespoon

To pour over the Dhokla
Water-2tablespoons
Sugar-2teaspoons


Method
Grind the ginger and green chilly with little water.

Combine the besan(kadalai maavu), turmeric powder,sugar,curd and the ginger-chilly paste in a bowl..add the water and mix it without lumps to a smooth batter.

Heat water in a steamer,and grease a plate with cooking oil. Once the water is hot and the steam started coming, add the fruit salt with the dhokla batter,mix it quickly,pour in the greased plate, and steam it for 10 minutes.

Switch off the stove after 10 minutes. Open the steamer and take the dhokla plate n let it cool for couple of minutes. Transfer the dhokla to another plate.

Dissolve the sugar in 2 tablespoons of water, pour this over the dhokla.

Heat oil in a small pan, make the tempering with mustard seeds followed by sesame seeds, green chilly pieces & curry leaves. Pour the tempering over the dhokla.

Sprinkle the grated coconut & cilantro and spread everything uniformly on the dhokla.

Cut into desired shapes and enjoy!

Adding the sugary water will help to avoid the dry feeling in the throat while eating dhokla. Some people add this sugar+water in the tempering and pour it over the dhokla. Either way its fine. :)
Adding sesame seeds in the tempering enhances the taste. The roasted sesame seeds give a nice aroma! :)

We enjoyed it as such... you can make some green chutney,sweet chutney and serve on the side.

For me personally, these spongy dhoklas are so good on their own! :P:P
what you say?? :)))))
