Semolina Dhokla

I have never tried the original dhokla so far, but the semolina dhokla that I recently attempted came out successfully. Feeling really encouraged to try some other variations of dhokla. I plan to make some time out for it once this hurly burly over packing luggage and shifting get over.

Ingredients:                                Cooking time:30 minutes
For Dhokla:
ü  100 gm semolina
ü  150 gm yogurt
ü  1 cup of water
ü  1 medium sized carrot (julienned)
ü  1 capsicum (chopped)
ü  5-6 green chillies (chopped)
ü  Salt to taste
ü  1 tbsp Eno
ü  1 tbsp oil
For Tadka:
ü  1 tbsp oil
ü  1/2 tsp black mustard seeds
ü  green chillies
ü  1/2 tsp hing powder
ü  1 tsp sesame seeds
Some grated coconut (for garnishing)
1) Mix all the ingredients for dhokla together and blend them into a smooth batter. Pour that into a steamer and steam till a toothpick inserted at the centre comes out clean. (Add Eno just a minute before putting the steamer on oven.)

2) Heat oil in a pan and when oil becomes smoking hot, add the ingredients for tadka and allow them to sputter. Turn off the heat and pour this tadka on dhokla.

3) Garnish with grated coconut. Serve hot with a sweet chutney or tomato sauce.
