Cooking time
15 min


    • 220 grams semolina
    • 1 cup Saffola plain oats
    • 100 ml yogurt
    • an inch piece of ginger  and 2 green chillies ground into paste
    • 2 teaspoons ENO's fruit salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds
    • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds
    • 5-6 curry leaves
    • 2 slit green chillies
    • red chilli powder, for sprinkling
    • 2 tablespoons of Saffola oil, plus extra oil for greasing
    • a small bunch of coriander leaves, freshly chopped 
    • salt to taste

How to make Rawa Dhokla

    • Combine the semolina, Saffola plain oats and yogurt in a wide bowl, add 1/2 cup of water to make a thick batter. Cover and allow it to soak for 30 minutes. Stir in the ENO's fruit salt and 1 tablespoon of Saffola oil to the above batter adding more water, if required
    • The consistency of the batter should be such that when you use a ladle to pour it should fall in dollops. Stir in the green chilli-ginger paste, check the salt levels and adjust if required
    • Prepare the steamer by pouring water and preheating it on medium heat. Grease the dhokla pans with a little oil and pour the above batter into pans until half full
    • Sprinkle a little red chilli powder around the batter in all the pans. Place the pans in the stand. Once the steamer is preheated, place the dhokla stand into the steamer
    • Cover and let it steam for about 10-15 minutes until a tester, like a butter knife, when inserted comes out clean. Turn the heat off, remove the stand from the steamer and allow it to rest for a couple of minutes
    • Heat oil in a small pan on medium heat, add the mustard seeds, sesame seeds, slit green chillies, curry leaves and allow them to crackle
    • Turn off the heat and spread the above seasoning mixture over the steamed dhokla’s. Cut them into squares or diamonds and arrange them on a platter. Garnish with chopped coriander leaves and serve warm with Dhania Phudina Chutney


    Optional Additions


    • Add 1/2 cup of grated or pureed carrots, pureed spinach or finely pureed tomatoes to the dhokla batter. This adds nutrition, taste and color to the dhokla’s. Multi coloured dhokla’s make an attractive party food and a great school snack as well
