Split Chana Dal or Bengal Lentils Or Besan / Gram Flour Oil | Lemon Juice Ginger | Green Chillies Sugar | Fruit Salt or Baking Soda Turmeric | Water Mustard Seeds | Ural Dal Green or Red Chillies | Curry Leaves Grated Coconut (Optional) Cilantro


You can either mill your grains in the WonderMill Grain Mill to make the flour or use store bought gram flour.  If using a grain mill, connect and switch on the Grain Mill to Pastry mode, before pouring the grains into the mill.

Mix the batter ingredients until smooth. Then add fruit salt or baking soda to quickly ferment the batter.  Whisk again until the batter gets bubbly.

Now grease the container you are using. Then cook, by either steaming it in the pressure cooker for 15 minutes, baking it in the oven for 15 minutes or microwaving for 8 minutes.

Heat oil in a small container, throw in the tempering mix and once you hear the crackling, pour it over the khaman dhokla. Garnish with cilantro and /or shredded coconut.

Once cooled cut into pieces. Serve warm or at room temperature.
