I m back with another amazing food I personally love.Dhokla!!Its just one of the simple yet delicious snack items..In Indian streets dhokla is as famous as it is in our homes..It is being made using besan that is gram flour or suji/semolina or a combination of both..The recipe I have brought today is a simple one and actually I tried a different way of making dhokla and it turned out really great.Everyone in my family loved the taste and texture..
Nowadays there are dhokla mixture readily available in the market..like you bring it, mix it and steam it..but the satisfaction of making something all on your own and then being appreciated about the taste and texture feels soo good.
You know I have often heard about suji dhokla becoming sticky..but this recipe is all about that non sticky, soft to bite and fluffy recipe, also amazing in taste..so let’s make this delicacy..Vegetable suji Upma is a minimal ingredients recipe which are easily available in the kitchen..let’s go through the ingredients and method for this delicious snack recipe.
2 cups semolina/suji/Rawa
1 cup fresh curd
1/2 cup water
1 cup choppd onions
1/2 cup grated carrot
3 table spoon oil
2 chopped green chilli
1 table spoon mustard seeds
Salt 1 and 1/2 tea spoon /according to your taste1
1/3 tea spoon baking soda
Put a pan on the gas..add oil..let it be hot..now add the chopped onions, grated carrots and chopped chillies into it..mix well…cook for 2 minutes in medium flame.. Now add the semolina..mix well again..roast the semolina in medium flame for another 2 to 3 minutes..Tip:- By roasting semolina before making dhoklas makes it non sticky in texture and also taste better when mixed with semi cooked veggies..after roasting the semolina..let the mixture cool down for 5 minutes ..then put it into a container to make a semi thick better.. add curd and 1/2 cup water..mix all the ingredients well..keep it aside for 10 minutes to let the semolina be soaked well for a soft texture..
In this period put the dhokla steamer on the gas..add water..let it come to boiling point..now add the salt and baking soda into the batter.blend clockwise for 2 minutes..now grease the dhokla mold with little , put the batter and steam it on high flame for 12 minutes atleast.. check using a knife or toothpick to know if the dhokla is done..when its done the toothpic will come out nonstickey..just like we do while baking cakes..Now remove it from the steamer..let it cool down a bit..you can put a tadka of 1 table spoon oil by heating it and then adding some mustard seeds, let it pop and then put it all over the dhoklas..cut it using a knife and eat with your favorite sauce or chutney..Do try this yumm..this is soo delicious..
Note:- you can make dhoklas in your idli mold as idli shapes👍👍👍
