Any kind of dhokla is my family favorite. On top of that this kind of instant version is my favorite because I am very bad at pre-planning.

The traditional dhokla calls for soaking the dal-rice, grinding and fermenting. While this recipe calls for only 20-30 minutes resting time. That is the reason I like instant versions.

Another quick dhokla recipe – rava dhokla. Many time I do make quinoa dhokla too. I will share that recipe in future.

It has soft, fluffy and moist texture. I like to snack this as such without any chutney or dipping sauce.

20) Using a spoon drizzle the tadka over the dhokla. It does not require that all of the surface is covered with tadka.

Serving suggestion:  sooji oats dhokla can be served as a snack or breakfast as such or with chutney, ketchup on side. This can be packed into box for school snack or picnic snack because this tastes good even if it gets cold.
