Khaman dhokla is a very popular snack from the Indian state of Gujarat.This is very easy recipe but Making is an art. It takes some practice to get the correct.consistency after cooking. Most important things about the dhokla is very healthy and low fat .These dhoklas are so soft and spongy that the reference to nylon is really apt! what is more, this recipe is also very easy to implement if you follow these simple instructions properly and practice it a bit. The addition of fruit salt to the batter, and water to the tempering, are the two main factors responsible for the super-soft and spongy nature of this dhokla. Temper just before serving, for the perfect “100/100”! Today I am making dry rawa khaman dhokla .
