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