Method For Sandwich Dhokla
1. Apply some oil to a deep, flat-bottomed stainless steel vessel (like a cake pan) that fits into your steam cooker. Pour some water into the cooker and let it boil.
2. Once the water boils, add the baking soda to both the batters and mix it up. You should see the batter froth up a little.
3. Pour it into the prepared vessel to half the height, leaving ample space for the steamed batter to rise up and expand. If you are going to do this in batches, add the baking soda to the divided batter each time before steaming rather than adding it to the whole mixture. This ensures that the dhokla will become soft and fluffy.
4. Place it into the cooker and let it steam for about 15 minutes. Insert a toothpick in the center to see if its cooked through, then remove from the cooker and allow it to cool a little.
