Sandwich Dhokla

Let's celebrate today my mom's 69th birthday. Mom makes very lovely goodies in whole her life and she teach as well too. Gujarati are well known for their snacks specially Khaman, Dhokla , patra, muthia and much more. I always make Khaman and Dhokla but I wanted to try to make sandwich dhokla so one fine day I decided to make it and I can not believe the end result. Who dont like layer of yellow dhokla with green spicy chutney spread over it and topped it with white dhokla and above all it's healthy because it's steamed. Only oil I use is to temper it. So here it's recipe.


1 Cup Tur dal
1 Cup Chana dal
1/2 Cup Moong dal
1/2 Cup Urad dal
4 Cups uncooked Rice
tablespoon Ginger Garlic & Chilli paste
2 cups sour Yoghurt
1 teaspoon Turmeric powder
1 tablespoon Oil
1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder

For Thadka
2 tablespoon Oil
teaspoon Mustard seeds
teaspoon Sesame seeds
1/2 teaspoon Hing

For chutney
Coriander bunch 1
3 to 4 medium size Green Chillies
2 table spoon Ginger Garlic paste
tablespoon Coconut shredded (optional)
teaspoon Lemon Juice
Salt to taste

Soak all the dals & rice at least 6 to 8 hours.
Grind coarsely with yoghurt and leave to ferment for at least 12 hrs.(consistency should be thick like cake batter. You need good fermentation)
Make a paste of ginger & green chillies & add paste to the fermented mixture. Add turmeric powder and salt to mixture.
Heat the oil in small pan & add baking powder. When small bubble comes add this to mixture, stir well.
Grease a dhokla mould or a shallow cake tin or small thali with a little oil. Pour half of the quantity which would normally take for one mould or thali. Steam it for 5 to 8 minutes.
Then spread the chutney on the batter. Then put another layer on it & steam for 10-12 min. Cool it for some time.
Cut into squares & arrange in a serving plate/bowl.
Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard seed & sesame seeds. When the seeds begin to crackle then add hing, remove and pour over the dhoklas.
Serve hot garnished with chopped green coriander leaves and grated coconut. Hope you enjoy it.
