My Notes:

  • After Eno natural product salt is included don’t rest the hitter for long… just 5-10 mins resting time is alright not more than that.
  • Steam it just in the medium-low fire so it gets cooked inside moreover.
  • You can include a little squeeze of turmeric powder for additional splendid yellow shading.
  • While hardening doesn’t skip sesame seeds it gives a decent crunch while eating.
  • You can even include 1/2 glass water with 1 tbsp sugar and convey it to bubble at that point sprinkle it over the dhoklas to make it damp at that point exchange the hardening.
  • I didn’t have any thali plate of the required size so utilized my square heating plate to steam the dhokla.
