Ingredients used in Dhokal
• Urad dal - 2 cups.
• Rice - 1 cup.
• Plain yogurt - half cup.
• Salt - to taste.
• Baking soda - half tea spoon.
• Green chilies - 4 numbers.
• Ginger - 1 piece.
• Oil - 1/4 tea spoon.
• Lemon juice - 1 tea spoon.
• Water - as required.
• Coriander leaves - 2 springs.
  • Dry roast the rice and the dal on medium heat for 4-5 minutes. Cool and grind into a semi-coarse powder.
  • Put the powder in a bowl. Add plain yogurt which should be a little sour and to this add warm water. Mix thoroughly so that no lumps are formed and the batter is of pouring consistency.
  • Add salt and let it ferment for 8-10 hours.
  • Make a paste of ginger and green chillies. Once fermented, mix the ginger, green chilli paste with the batter. Grease the dhokla platter or a thali. Boil water in the steamer/boiler.
  • Pour half of the batter in another vessel. In a small bowl, add baking soda, littleoil and lemon juice. Mix well.
  • Add this to the batter and mix well. Repeat this for the remaining batter just before putting it in the steamer.
  • Pour this onto the greased platter and keep it in the steamer to steam for 8-10 minutes. Check with a knife. If the knife comes out clean, it is cooked.
  • Sprinkle some coriander/cilantro leaves.

Serve hot with GreenChutney .
