Sandwich khaman

Khaman Dhokla is an all-time favorite Gujarati snack recipe. In this recipe, I made a sandwich khaman with regular khaman dhokla layered with green chutney and top up with tomato sauce and sev. It is a combination of sweet and sour taste, which is generally served as a snack but can also be served as a morning breakfast recipe or sudden guest at home. It is an easy and foolproof recipe for soft and spongy khaman dhokla. Do try this!

The key to making khatta meetha dhokla at home are

  • Firstly, the dhokla batter should be medium thick and ribbon-like pouring consistency. I grind dhokla batter well so air particles incorporate in it and dhokla becomes soft and spongy dhokla. You can use a hand whisker instead of a mixture jar.
  • dhokla tastes great when it is slightly sweet and sour. I use nimbu na phool (citric acid) to give sourness to dhokla batter. You can use lemon juice instead of it.
  • For soft and fluffy dhokla, I have added baking soda which can be easily replaced with Eno fruit salt if you wish to. But I would heavily recommend using very less turmeric as it would react with baking soda to yield a pink color spot.
  • i have steamed the dhokla on a steel vessel, you can use kadai or steamer instead of it. Also, preheating steamer and kadai helps to make spongy dhokla.
  • Spread some tempering on cooked dhokla to enhance its flavor and taste.
  • Lastly, the sandwich dhokla tastes great when it is served immediately.
