Sooji dhokla

Dhokla is a vegetarian food item that originates from the Indian state of Gujarat. It is made with a fermented batterderived from rice and split chickpeas.[1] Dhokla can be eaten for breakfast, as a main course, as a side dish, or as a snack. Dhokla is very similar to Khaman, and the terms are frequently used interchangeably. Khaman is a similar gram flour-based food. Whereas dhokla is made with rice and chickpeas, khaman is made from chickpeas only. It is generally lighter in color and softer than dhokla, to make dhokla small proportion of baking soda is added while in khaman more baking soda is added to make it more fluffy spongy and porous.
  We love dhokla, we have this when we got to pune. I have tried this kaman dhokla for quite a fe times, it was a big failure. One of my friends here in singapore who is from Mumbai, treated me with dhokla in her house. But this dhokla was made in sooji. It was so soft and yummy. I couldnt resist myself in trying my hubby and some of my relatives. She told me the recipe and the nuances. thanks my dear friend Sweta.
