  • Pour a glass of water in the pressure cooker. Keep the pan in the pressure cooker over a stand.
  • Close the lid and do not put weight. Steam for 15 minutes or till done ( reduce the steam from high to medium and steam for 15 minutes ) or steam in a steamer for 15 minutes on a medium heat.
  • Keep aside for cool for 15 minutes and cut into desired shapes.
  • For seasoning
  • Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds. When they start sputter add jeera, curry leaves, green chillies, lemon juice and hing. Stir, keep on low heat till fragrant. Pour this seasoning over dhokla.
  • Sprinkle with desiccated coconut and chopped coriander leaves. Serve hot / cool with green chutney.
  • Green chutney
