SANDWICH DHOKLA

SANDWICH DHOKLA
Ingredients For Sandwich Dhokla
1 cup Besan (Chickpea flour/ gram flour), 2 tbsp Rava (Sooji), 1/2 tsp Eno Fruit salt, Salt to taste, 1 tsp Sugar, 2 tsp Baking soda, ½ tsp ginger garlic paste, 1tsp coriander seeds powder, 2tsp chili paste, ¾ cup buttermilk, ½ tsp turmeric powder, 2 tbsp oil, mustard seeds, 1/2 cup chopped coriander, 1 cup grated coconut and ¾ cup water.

Method For Sandwich Dhokla
Mix besan, rava, eno fruit salt, sugar, ginger garlic paste, coriander seeds powder, chili paste, 1 tbsp oil, turmeric, buttermilk (all the ingredients for the Dhokla) except the baking soda. Add about 3/4 cup of water. The batter should be about the consistency of dosa batter. Add little more water if required.

Steaming the Dhoklas

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.

Layering and Assembling the Sandwich Dhokla

1. Cut triangles / squares (or other shapes) of steamed dhokla.

2. Take the dhokla pieces and apply some green cilantro chutney on one piece.
3. Apply tomato sauce on the other piece of the dhokla. 4. Heat oil in pan, add mustard seeds to it. When it starts popping pour the mixture on the above dhokla.
5. Garnish it with coriander leaves and grated coconut.
