Instant Idli Dhokla

Dhokla is a vegetarian food item that originates from the Indian state of Gujarat. It is made with a fermented batter derived from rice and split chickpeas. Dhokla can be eaten for breakfast, as a main course, as a side dish, or as a snack. Today I use dhokla made in idli mould with instant dhokla mix.

Preparation time :  10 minutes 
Cooking time : 15 minutes
Serves : 3 to 4 

Ingredients : 
1 cup instant Dhokla mix (I use MTR mix )
½  cup water 
4 tbsp cooking oil 
1 /2  tsp ginger green chilly paste 
1 tsp lemon juice 
1 tsp fruit salt 
2 pinch of salt 
1 pinch asafetida 

For  sugar syrup  
2 tbsp sugar 
8  tbsp water 

For Tempering  
1 tsp oil 
1 green chilly chopped 
¼  tsp hing/ asafetida 
10 to 12 curry leaves (optional)

For garnishing  
3 tbsp grated coconut

Methods of Cooking :
 In a bowl take a instant dhokla mix, water, ginger green chilly paste , lemon juice, salt , asefitida , oil. Mix well. Take Idli mould grease it with oil. Then add fruit salt with the dhokla mixture. Now with a ladle put the dhokla mixture in the mould . Steam the dhoklas for 15 minutes in high flame. In the mean time make light sugar syrup boiling the sugar and water. In a small pan heat oil add chopped green chilly fry and then add hing. Put off the flame. In a serving plate arrange the dhoklas . Sprinkle sugar syrup above the dhokla and then top the dhoklas with the tempering and garnish with grated coconut.
Soft yummy dhoklas and crispy fried sweet jelebis are deadly morning snack combo. Do try and let me know.
