Dhokla-Ma's


My mom learnt gujarati cuisine only because me and my sister are very fond of it. Dhokla,dhebra ,muthiya and handvo are some of things she makes everytime I visit her and I must admitt, she makes better than our Gujarati neighbours. Me and my sister have tried many times to recreate her taste but have not been very succesful and I blame it on my stinginess in the use of oil!
Ingredients:
chana dal- half cup
rice-1 cup
little urad dal, tur dal-(1 tbsp each,I guess)
2 pod garlic
3 green chilli
salt
soda bi carb-1/4 tsp
Tadka-oil , 1 tsp mustard seeds
Chilli powder-half tsp for garnishing
Method:
1. Soak first three ingredients in water for atleast 4 hrs.
2.Grind them coarsely.with salt, garlic and green chilli.
3.Allow to ferment atleast 8 hrs.
4.Add soda bicarb just before steaming, for about 10 min.
5.Sprinkle the chilli powder and add the tadka.
