  • 1 & 1/2 cups medium grained rice
  • 1/2 cup split black gram (urad dal)
  • 1/4 cup yogurt, slightly beaten
  • 1-2 green chillies, thinly sliced (or  1/2 tsp green chilli paste)
  • 10-12 whole peppercorns
  • 1 tsp oil
  • 1 tsp fruit salt (Eno)
  • 1/2 tspn Coarsely ground black pepper
  • Chilli powder (optional) for garnish
  • Salt to taste


  • Soak the rice and black gram separately, at least for 6-7 hours.
  • Drain the rice and grind it in your processor until it becomes a paste. The texture will still feel coarse/grainy.
  • Next grind the black gram. Add water only if required.
  • Now mix both the batters.  Add the yogurt, salt , peppercorns and mix well. Ferment overnight.
  • The next day – add the sliced green chillies (or chilli paste) and oil . Mix well.
  • Keep the steamer ready – there should not be a delay after the fruit salt is added to the batter.
  • Now add eno and mix well, sprinkle red chilly powder & pepper powder on the top , and pour the batter into the plate.
  • Steam for about 1015 minutes or until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  • Let it cool for few minutes and then cut out pieces – diamond shaped or square – whatever strikes your fancy! And its ready to go inside your tumyyyyyyyyyy…yummyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy Enjoy ting !!! 😉

    Hi just wanted to know if I want to make dhokla by evening time when do I start preparing for it? Also after the fermentation process can I keep it in fridge till evening as I wanna prepare it in evening or should it be kept outside?
