Moong Dal Dhokla



  • Combine the yellow moong dal and green chillies and blend in a mixer using a little water to make a paste of pouring consistency.
  • Transfer the paste to a bowl, add the salt, sugar, asafoetida, oil, turmeric powder, besan and curds and mix well to make a batter.
  • Just before steaming, sprinkle fruit salt and mix lightly. Pour the batter into a greased 175 mm. (7") diameter thali.
  • Steam in a steamer for 10 to 12 minutes or till the dhokalas are cooked. Keep aside. Heat the oil in a small non-stick pan and add the mustard seeds.
  • When the mustard seeds crackle, add the sesame seeds, asafoetida and sauté on a medium flame for 30 seconds.
