First of all, as a fan I would like to congratulate you on your sincere efforts to present the most commonly relished recipe in you own authentic style. Now regarding the Besan Dhokla which is my family's favourite dish, if it is possible to show the video presentation of the same recipe, I shall remain earnestly thankful. Hoping to see a video presentation of my favourite chef soon.
