Instant Semolina Dhokla (Sooji Dkhokla in Microwave)

                                                                                
In today's hectic life, all of us are hard pressed for time and particularly us the Ladies have to play many roles ranging from Mother, Wife, Professional, etc within a single day. Hence, it becomes more important that we have tasty and healthy snack between meals which does not take much of our time. Therefore, I have come across this recipe called Instant Sooji Dhokla. Not only this recipe can be prepared within 10 minutes but it does not taste any different than the traditional method. It is more so useful if some unexpected friends and relatives have dropped in and you have to treat them with a delicious snack. So here it is to satisfy the taste buds of yours and your guests.


Ingredients:
For the base:
1 cup Semolina (sooji)
1/2 cup hung Curd
3/4 cup Water
1/2 tsp grated Ginger
1 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Turmeric powder
2 Green chilly, ground to paste
4-5 Curry leaves
2 tsp Eno powder


For Tempering  / Tadka:
1 1/2 tbsp Oil
1 tsp Black mustard seeds
1 tsp White sesame seeds
2 whole Red chillies
A pinch of Asafetida (hing)
A Fistful of curry leaves


For Garnishing:
Grated coconut, fresh
Combine all these in a cup and keep this syrup ready for later use -2 tbsp Water + 1 tsp Sugar + 5-6 drops of Lemon juice


Method:
Take a large bowl, add semolina and add all the above ingredients which comes under 'for the base' except Eno. Mix well until you get a smooth paste. Keep aside this mixture for 20 minutes. Now grease a microwave safe bowl and pour eno over the rested batter. Mix well and immediately transfer it to the greased bowl. Microwave on high for 6 minutes (by this time you will see the top surface is set nicely and it will leave the sides of the bowl). 
                                                        
Let it cool down completely and then cut into wedges.


                                            
To prepare the tempering, heat oil in a small kadhai and when it reaches smoking point add mustard seeds. When it starts spluttering add green chilly, white sesame seeds, hing and curry leaves. Immediately pour the tadka over Dholka cake. Pour the prepared syrup over the dhokla. Garnish with coconut and serve this warm.

  22. Soft spongy Dhokla in microwave!! This sounds very easy to make. :)

    Only last year, I tasted Khaman Dhokla for the first time in a restaurant in Chennai and since then, I'm yearning to taste them again. Most of the recipes I found suggested a little complicated procedure. I found yours quite easy and inspiring. The only thought now is the Eno salt. I cant get it here. :( Could you please suggest an alternative or a substitute for that? Thanks in advance :)

    Also, thanks for your lovely support and comments, inspite of my continued absence at your wonderful space. ;)
