Dhokla is a vegetarian food item that originates from the Indian state of Gujarat. It is a very less time-consuming recipe & it tastes amazing/heavenly. Those who don't want to eat fried food then dhokla is a best breakfast/ snacks item for them. It is made with a fermented batter of chickpeas flour, semolina, curd & some other ingredients. Fermented batter is used to make the dhokla to be floppy. Here I have not used fermented batter but the result is pretty same. Dhokla is served with mint, coriander chutney or tamarind chutney. So let's start...
