KHAMAN DHOKLA


Khaman Dhokla
, A finger-licking Gujarati delicacy that hails from the western state of Gujarat, India.

It is a savoury steamed cake, usually served as a breakfast or afternoon tea with piping hot Masala Chai or tantalizing chutneys or appears in a Gujarati Thali as a part of Farsan (Savoury item).

The Khaman Dhokla are made with fine chickpea flour aka besan and they are gluten-free.

The texture of Khaman Dhokla has to be light, fluffy, spongy and airy, the flavours are a mix of sweet, tangy and a little spicy.



What is KHAMAN DHOKLA CHAAT?



This DHOKLA CHAAT recipe is the marriage of two Gujarati household favourites. Leftover spongy Khaman Dhokla are great in this recipe when they are topped with finger-licking chutneys, Sev and other chaat favourties.

Chaat is known to be intensely full of flavour and textures and this chaat recipe provides just that. The dhokla are soft and spongy and soak up the flavours of the other ingredients really well.
