Recipe: Veggie Dhokla (microwavable)

Hey all!

The recipe which I’m sharing today is my personal favorite. Bee finds it yummy and healthy too. 🙂
The basic idea is to have dhokla. To prepare it quick and simple way.
So let’s get started.


dhokla base:

  • chickpea flour (besan) – 1/2 cup
  • semolina (suji) – 1/2 cup
  • yogurt – 1 cup
  • salt pinch
  • asafoetida (hing) – pinch
  • fruit salt – 1 small sachet or soda bicarbonate – 1 tsp

veggie mix:

  • corn kennels – 1/3 cup
  • red pepper – 1/3 cup
  • capsicum – 1/3 cup
  • paprika 1 tsp
  • olive oil – 1-2 tsp
  • salt pinch
  • red chilli powder pinch


  • lukewarm water – 1 cup
  • white rice vinegar – 1tbsp
  • salt
  • sugar
  • coconut desiccated and coriander leaves and chopped green chillies (optional) to garnish


1.) Mix all the ingredients under the dhokla base except soda bicarb. Keep it for later use.
2.) In a dish mix all the ingredients under veggie mix. Transfer them on grill tray and grill them till they are golden brown.

3.) Once the veggies are grilled, mix them into the base mixture and mix them. Add soda bicarb or fruit salt.
4.) Microwave them for 4 – 5 minutes on HIGH POWER (the timings may differ from microwave to microwave and its high power temperature). To check you may poke a fork into the cooked dhokla and if the fork comes out clean, it is done.
5.) Now mix lukewarm water, vinegar, salt and sugar (do remember we added salt in base as well as veggies, so don’t add too much of it).
6.) Pour this water syrup on the dhokla and let it get absorbed.

7.) Once dhokla has soaked the syrup, you may garnish it with chopped coriander leaves, green chillies and desiccated coconut.Seve with tomato ketchup or green mint chutney.
