To temper

  • 2 tsp oil

  • After 15 mins, add salt, lemon juice, eno and water (approx 1/2 cup) as needed and make a thick batter.
  • Side by side boil water in a steamer.
  • Grease a flat base vessel that would fit into your steamer. I used my cooker vessel.
  • Pour the prepared batter. Tap gently few times.
  • Once water boils in steamer, keep inside and cook for 12 mins or until the knife inserted the dhokla comes out clean.
  • Cool down for 5 mins. Loosen up the sides and invert over a plate. Tap gently to un-mould.
  • Heat a kadai with oil, splutter mustard and add a sprig of curry leaves. Fry until crisp.
  • Add water, sugar and stir well to dissolve.Pour over the dhokla all over. Cut into squares to serve.


  • Instead of eno, you can use 1/2 tsp cooking soda.
  • Make dhokla as soon as you mix eno.
  • You can use white plain eno or the green lemon flavour one.
