Ingredients list for White Dhokla Sandwich

  • 1 cup Rice
  • 1/4 cup Split skinless black gram (dhuli urad dal) soaked and drained
  • 1/4 cup Sour yogurt whisked
  • teaspoons Oil 2 tablespoons + 2
  • 2 teaspoons Green chilli-ginger paste fresh
  • to taste Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Fruit salt
  • 1/3 cup Green chutney
  • 3/4 cup Mustard seeds
  • a pinch Asafoetida
  • 5-6 Curry leaves
  • 1-2 Green chillies slit


  1. Drain the water and grind the rice and dal with half a cup of water to a fine batter. The batter should be thick, but of pouring consistency.
  2. Transfer the batter into a deep bowl and add the yogurt and whisk well till no lumps remain. Cover the bowl with a lid and keep it in a warm place to ferment overnight.
  3. Heat sufficient water in a steamer. Grease two round dhokla plates with one tablespoon oil.
  4. Meanwhile, add the green chilli-ginger paste, salt and fruit salt and oil to the batter and mix well.
  5. Pour the batter into prepared plates.
  6. Place the plates in the steamer. Cover with the lid and steam for 8-10 minutes. Check with a skewer to see if the dhokla is almost cooked.
  7. Spread a generous layer of green chutney and pour another layer of batter on top.
  8. Steam for 10-12 minutes more.
  9. Heat the remaining oil in a non-stick pan. Add the mustard seeds, asafoetida and curry leaves and green chillies. When the seeds stop spluttering, pour the tempering on the dhokla.
  10. Cut into cubes and serve.
