Khaman Dhokla






































Khaman Dhokla is a traditional Gujarati savoury Snack..you can serve in your full thali as a farsan too. Khaman Dhokla is not only limited to Gujarati cuisine but it is one of the most liked snacks in entire India. Many households make this dish..and you can have different tastes and versions. Main taste you look out is Sweet and sour, which you can find on streets or little sweet mart shops...and they have one trick...they are loaded with sugar and lemon juice water..and that water gives khaman dhokla a KHATTA MEETHA flavour.

Please don't get confused with Khaman Dhokla and Khatta Dhokla..they both are differently made and different tastes too.

  8. Dhokra look so tasty. I like this quick recipe. I tend to make the traditional way where you have to soak the gram flour in yogurt the night before. It used to be our Sunday brunch when my FIL was alive.
