How to Prepare
  • Methods:

    • First of all, take a steamer pan and grease it well with oil.
    • In a mixing bowl, take the gram flour.
    • In the gram flour, add asafoetida, turmeric powder, ginger paste, lemon juice, sugar, green chilies paste, oil and salt.
    • Add water to form a thick batter.
    • Now add rava into the batter and stir well.
    • Make sure there are lumps within the batter. Add water if required but make sure that the batter isn't runny.
    • If the batter becomes thin then add gram flour or add water to make the batter a bit thinner.
    • Add eno into the batter and stir quickly to evenly mix the eno into the batter.
    • Once you add the eno, you will find that the batter turns out to be bubbly. Therefore, it is quite important to be quick in carrying out the further procedure.
    • The batter would froth and become bubbly, so you have to be quick.
    • Pour the batter in the greased pan.
    • Now boil 1½ cup of water in a steamer or pressure cooker.
    • Once the water boils, place the pan in a steamer.
    • Place the pan containing batter into the steamer or pressure cooker.
    • Steam for 15-17 minutes on a medium-high heat.
    • After 15-17 minutes, take out the dhokla and insert a toothpick into it. If the toothpick comes out clean then the khaman dhokla is fully cooked else you need to steam the khaman for some more minutes.
    • Once the khaman cools down or becomes lukewarm, slide the edges gently using a knife.
    • Invert the khaman dhokla and slice it into small cubes.
    • Keep the sliced cubes of khaman dhokla aside.


    • Take a small tadka pan and heat oil into it. If you don't have a tadka pan, then you can heat the oil in any other small pan.
    • Add mustard seeds into the oil and allow them to splutter.
    • Once the mustard seeds begin to splutter, add cumin seeds along with curry leaves and chopped green chilies.
    • Now add water. While adding the water, make sure you are careful as adding water can make the mixture sizzle.
    • Now add sugar, stir and boil the tempering mixture. This will ensure that the sugar dissolves completely into the water.
    • Pur the tempering mixture uniformly on the sliced khaman.
    • Garnish with chopped coriander leaves and grated coconut.
    • You can serve the khaman dhokla straight away along with chutney or sauce.
    • You can also store the khaman dhokla in the refrigerator by keeping the dhokla in a box.
  • When we talk about Dhokla, it is a soft spongy savory dish prepared using gram flour and some basic herbs and spices. These are quite healthy and easy-to-make snacks.
