Rava Dhokla

Today I am posting another variation of Dhokla, which is as tasty as the other versions. The peculiarity of this version is that it is made only with semolina. Alike all Dhoklas, It is easy to make and can be good tea time snack or light dinner option. My three year daughter loves it very much and I’ll recommend it as good lunch box option for kids.


1 cup Semolina/Suji/Rava
½ cup Yoghurt
1 tsp Oil
1 tsp Eno
Salt to taste

For tempering
1 tbsp Oil
1 tsp Mustard seeds
1 tsp White Sesame seeds
7-8 Curry leaves
1 tbsp chopped Green Chili
Chopped Coriander for Garnishing


Mix semolina, yoghurt, 1 cup water in a bowl and keep it aside for half an hour. Then add salt, oil and enough water to make a batter of pouring consistency. Lastly add Eno (fruit salt) just before steaming and mix well.

Grease the thali for approx 6″ diameter and pour this batter into it. Steam it for approximately 15-20 minutes. To check whether Dhokla is cooked or not, put knife inside it and if it comes out clean means it is cooked. Let it cool for 5-10 min and then cut into small square pieces. Raw dhokla is ready now.

Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds. When they start crackling, add curry leaves and chopped green chili. At the end, add sesame seeds and sauté for few seconds. Put off the gas, pour this tempering on the dhokla and garnish with chopped coriander. Dhokla is ready to serve.
