Rava dhokla recipe, Instant rava dhokla

Rava dhokla is an easy and filling snack that can be prepared easily at home. Quick video, step wise pictures post.

I thought rava dhokla to be same as rava idli and did not want to try it out. Today thought of giving it a try (adapted from here) as it is easy and was wanting to post something in blog. It turned out delicious than I expected. I may be biased as I love all items prepared with sooji/ rava. Infact loved it more than the instant besan dhokla.

Vj too loved it, to my surprise. The sugar water we pour along with tadka is really a game changer. I love the ginger and chilli paste we add in the batter along with lemon juice. Have used eno for this, you can sure replace it with cooking soda. We ate it as such but it goes well with green chutney, you must have guessed it. I wanted it to be white, but because of my chilli paste mixture, it became a different colour than I had in mind.
