How to Temper your Dhokla

  • In a cooking pan, take 2 tbsp oil. In the meanwhile, in a small bowl, dissolve 2 tbsp of sugar. into 200 ml of water.

Notes

  • The consistency of the Dhokla batter should be perfect which is the key for a soft spongy Khaman Dhokla.
  • Beat the batter as much you want. This is because, the more you whisk, the more bubbles will be formed in the batter which makes the Dhokla soft.
  • After you put the batter in the baking tray, don’t pat it to set the batter. Because doing this will make the bubbles burst which in turn will make your Dhokla less spongy.
  • You can use ¼ tsp baking soda instead of ENO.
