Sweetcorn Dhokla


Dhokla is a traditional Gujarati snack made using gram flour and yogurt.  This delicious savoury steamed cake is served with chutneys.  The one I made today is not a traditional one.  This is something very similar to rava idli's. I came across this recipe in Tarla dala's site recently under the category of Assorted Dhokla.  There were many assorted dhoklas, in which my selection was this sweet corn dhokla.  I actually made these just like the rava idli preparation and poured in a pan and steamed, you can also make it in regular idli plates.  It hardly needs 5 or 10 minutes to prepare.  Enjoy these hot steaming dhoklas with your favourite chutney.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 10 minutes
Makes 15 squares

Ingredients:
Semolina- 1 cup
Sweet corn puree- 1/2 cup
Yogurt- 1 1/2 cup
Bicarbonate of soda- 3/4 tsp
Salt- 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder- 1/4 tsp
Seasoning:
Mustard seeds- 1 tsp
Fresh grated coconut- 1 tbsp
Steamed fresh sweet corn- 2 tbsp
Coriander leaves- 2 stalk finely chopped
Oil- 1/2 tbsp

Note:
1 cup= 250 ml
You can also substitute 1 cup of semolina with 1/2 cup semolina& 1/2 cup oats.

Method:
Mix the semolina, salt, turmeric and bicarbonate of soda in a large bowl.  Add the sweetcorn puree and 1/2 cup of yogurt mix it well.  Then add the remaining 1 cup of yogurt and mix it well.  Pour it in a greased pan.  Steam it for 10 minutes.  To check wheather it's cooked insert a skewer and if it comes out clean then it's cooked.
For seasoning heat the oil in a pan, add the mustard seeds when it starts spluttering, add the corn and grated coconut stir it for 2 minutes. Pour it on top of the dhokla.  Garnish with chopped coriander leaves.
To make Sweetcorn puree:
Take 1 cup of canned sweet corn  and blend it by adding little water.  If you like it more spicy you can also add some 1 green chilly when grinding.

Serve the dhoklas warm with chutney.
