For the batter
¾ cup Bengal gram flour (besan)
¼ cup soya flour
1½ tablespoons semolina (rawa)
½ teaspoon citric acid (nimbu ke phool)
3½ teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon green chilliginger paste
1½ teaspoons Eno’s fruit salt
salt to taste

a pinch asafoetida (hing)
2 teaspoons oil
For the garnish
1 tablespoon chopped coriander
For serving
nutritious green chutney
Method
1. Mix together all the ingredients for the batter, except the fruit salt, using enough water to make a thick batter.
2. Add in the fruit salt, sprinkle a little water over the fruit salt and mix well. The mixture will rise immediately.
3. When the mixture rises, pour it into a greased thali and steam for about 10 minutes.
4. For the tempering, heat the oil in a small pan and add the mustard seeds, sesame seeds, green chillies and asafoetida. When the mustard seeds crackle, add 1 tablespoon of water and pour this over the steamed dhoklas.
5. Cut into pieces and serve hot with nutritious green chutney.
Tips
You can use 1 teaspoon of lemon juice instead of the citric acid crystals.
Keep the steamer hot and only then add the fruit salt into the batter.
