Instant Rava Dhokla

Perfect for lunch box, tea time or even anytime! My all time favorite!
Khatta Dhokla is a traditional Gujarati snack that can be served warm or even cold. Rice, Chana dal and Urad dal are the main ingredients to prepare traditional Dhokla. Overnight soaking, grind and then fermentation is involved in traditional method but to make it instant, I use Soji and Besan.
