DHOKLA Vegetarian-Dish

Dhokla is a Gujarati specialty. It's made of a batter that steams to a moist cornbread texture, and then is tempered with a little flavored oil. Dhokla is always served with fresh chutney, sometimes as a snack, sometimes to accompany a meal. The amazing thing about dhokla is its versatility: it can be made of cornmeal or, more commonly, as here, a blend of dal and rice that is soaked then ground into a batter. The batter often contains yogurt.
