Khaman Dhokla

Dhokla is basically a Gujarati dish. It is also called as savory steamed cake prepared from gram flour. Khaman is a food common in Gujarat state of India. Dhokla is eaten as side dish or snacks. Usually, I prepare it as a snack. Since this dish is prepared using steamed method, people prefer to cook with microwave oven when short of time. But I have never tried with microwave oven.

I personally feel, instead of bonda this dhokla is a healthy snack. Currently, in my house my husband and myself both like it. My son eats when he is in a good mood. Else he screams at me “Plsss No Ma” “Don’t force me”.

Really! Cooking is a very important and very challenging hobby. Because you need to cook daily as per the taste of people in your house with different dish. Cooking in kitchen really exhibits creativity of every Indian Homemaker.

After coming to US, accepting the challenges of cooking. Thanks for my friend, for providing me a platform to post my recipes. Thank you Friend!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
