White Dhokla/ Idra


Rice 3 cups

Urad dal 1 cup

Green chillies (crushed) 1tbsp

Ginger (grated) 1 tbsp

Salt to taste

Fruit salt (eno) 1 tsp

Curry leaves 6-7

Mustard seeds 2 tsp

Sesame seeds 1 tsp

Green chillies 2 (slit)

Freshly grated coconut 1 tbsp (optional)

Oil 1 tbsp

Coriander leaves (chopped)


Firstly we need to mix the rice and dal in a bowl wash them well and soak them in enough water for around 5-6 hours.

After that u need to grind the soaked dal-rice with little water to a smooth batter.

Keep the batter in a warm place for 7-8 hours/overnight to ferment. 

Not get your steamer ready and grease the plate with little oil in which u would be steaming the Dhokla.

In the fermented batter add the salt, crushed green chillies, grated ginger and the fruit salt give it a good stir.

Now pour some of the batter in the grease plate and place it in the steamer for 10-12 minutes. Then cut them into small pieces. 

Repeat the process until all the batter is used.

Now in a small pan heat the oil, add the mustard seeds, sesame seeds, slit green chillies and curry leaves fry everything for a minute or two. 

Add the oil and the fried seeds over the prepared Dhokla.

Garnish it with coriander leaves and grated coconut. 

Serve it with green chutney and ginger tea😋.
