How to Make Triple Dhoklas

  • To prepare the basic dhokla, clean the rice and urad dal with wet cloth, mix and grind coarsely.
  • Add the sour curd and warm water to it and make a thick paste. Allow this paste to ferment for 6-7 hours.
  • Add ginger and chilli pastes and salt to it. The batter should not be too thick.
  • Heat 3 tsp water in a small vessel and heat it. Then add 3 tsp. oil to the water.
  • When the mixture starts boiling, remove it from heat. Add soda to it and pour this into the dhokla batter. Mix well.
  • Meanwhile, blanch the spinach and coriander leaves and blend them to make a fine paste.
  • Divide the plain dhokla batter into two parts and add the blended spinach paste to one part.
  • Apply oil to a plate. Steam it for 3-4 mins.
  • Then pour white dhokla batter on it and again steam for 3-4 mins.
  • Mix all the ingredients for khaman and mix enough water to make a thick batter.
  • Pour this mixture on top of the white dhokla batter and steam again for 10 mins.
  • Cool and cut the tri-coloured dhokla into pieces.
  • Temper the dhokla pieces with mustard and serve with coriander chutney and tamarind chutney.
