Oats Sooji Khaman Dhokla

Today I am posting receipt of fifth kind of Dhokla on my blog. This time I tried making it by adding oats. The dish came out very well and everyone liked it. This is a healthy tea time snack or light dinner option.


1/4th cup Powdered Oats
1/4th cup Semolina
1/4th cup Gram Flour (Besan)
2 tbsp Yoghurt
1 tsp Green Chili paste
Salt to taste
1 tsp Eno (Fruit salt)
1 tbsp Oil
8-10 Curry leaves
1tbsp Green chili chopped
1 tsp Mustard seeds
1/2 tsp Cumin seeds
1/2 tsp Red chili powder
1/4 tsp Turmeric powder
1 tsp Coriander powder
Salt to taste
Coriander leaves for garnish


In a bowl mix semolina, oats flour, yoghurt, gram flour, 1/2 cup water and keep it aside for 1 hour. Then add salt, green chili paste and enough water to make a batter of pouring consistency. Lastly add Eno (fruit salt) just before steaming and mix well.

Grease the thali approx 6″ diameter, pour this batter into it and steam it for approximately 10-15 minutes. To check whether khaman is cooked or not, put knife inside khaman and if it comes out clean means it is cooked. Let it cool for 5-10 min and then cut into small square pieces. Add red chili powder, turmeric powder, coriander powder and salt on these pieces. Heat oil in a pan, once heated add cumin seeds and mustard seeds. Fry the spiced khaman into it and stir it slowly (without breaking the square pieces), until its well coated with spices. Garnish with chopped coriander leaves and serve hot. It can be served with green chutney and tomato ketchup.
