After 12 to 15 hours let’s see how to cook the white dhokla,

so friends you can see your better has rising up a little puffed up and little which means that it has fermented well, while smelling it it has a slight sourness to the smell, which mean that the fermentation is absolutely perfect,

Before adding other ingredient to the batter let’s prepare the steamer, we will add water to the steamer cover it with the lid, and turn the gas on, before adding the dhokla the steam should have formed in your steamer, once the steam is formed in the steamer let’s prepare the batter,

so friends our batter is ready now we will add half table spoon ginger and green chilli paste two tablespoon oil 1/4 tables baking soda and salt according taste, mix everything properly with gentle hands if you are better has not fermented very well then I am giving you a tip

We will add  of water and add mix to table spoon eno fruit salt to this and mix it, even then the batter will nicely rise, this is a very important tips

So friends our batter is completely ready now to make the white dhokla take the steamer plate or some other plate and we will apply some oil to it after applying oil pour little amounts of batter in the plate, after poring spread the better into the plate the thickness of dhokla will depend entirely on you,

because I love the really thin once but today I am making medium thickness white dhokla after spreading it nicely gently tape it on the platform to remove any air pockets at bottom after that sprinkle freshly cracked black pepper to it, it gives a very nice flavour and hence is very important some people at red chilli powder to it as well I used only black pepper powder, now place this plate into the steamer after applying into the steamer cover it with the lid and putting a timer for 15 minutes let the dhokla steam on medium flame,

How to make the Green Chutney

Chutney Ingredients:

  • CURD  3 TBSP
  • ICE CUBE  1 NO.

Until the dhokla is steaming let’s see how to make the green chutney

So I am taking a mixer grinder in a grinding jar take one cup fresh coriander, 4,5 spicy green chilli, 1-inch Ginger, one table spoon peanuts, three tablespoon curd, 1/4 tablespoon cumin seeds, one table spoon lemon juice, and salt according to test, 1 tablespoon sugar, and one cube ice is to retain the colour and we will add some water and grind all these things together, now friends our green chutney is ready

Now the white dhokla has also been cooking for 10 minutes let’s check it to check the dhokla touch it with your finger it should not stick to your finger, and the other method is that insert a knife or toothpick the knife should come out clean, so our dhokla is completely ready and has passed the taste,

now we will take the dhokla out on a side after removing it I am brushing some oil on top of the white dhokla recipe some people temper it with mustard seat and curry leaves I am keeping it simple here brush the oil on top after brushing the oil let it rest for 3 to 5 minutes,

So that you can easily de-mould them after resting you can cut it into various shape using a knife today I am cutting into square shape you can cut even into diamond shape if you want once you have cut shape then using a flat spatula or plate knife separate it from the base of the plate

So friend our soft soft spongy whitewhite dhokla is ready it is perfect white dhokla now we will serve it

So friends I am eating this white dhokla with green chutney,

So friends our dhokla is very delicious it is very soft and spongy and the thickness of dhokla I have kept medium size today when I am making it for myself I made almost half of this thickness they are thin sheet of dhokla and that’s dhokla taste really good too,

friends just keep in mind that if the thickness is less than the cooking time will reduce and if you increase the thickness you are cooking time will increase you need to adjust that otherwise the recipe is a very very simple and easy sure the process of fermentation is very long some people are scared and hesitant to make recipe which need fermentation but if you make it once you will make it over and over again
