This is one of easy snack can be served as main dish too, I do this way which is fool proof method. Hope this works for you too.

Ingredients :

Besan Flour - 1 cup
Eno fruit salt - 1 1/2 tsp

Citric acid - 1/2 tsp or u can substitute with 1 tsp lemon juice
Rawa/ Sooji  - 1  1/2 tbsp 
Sugar - 1 tbsp
Salt - 1 tsp or as needed
Water -  1 cup
Ginger + green chilli paste - 1 tsp each
Oil - 1 1/2 tbsp

For Tempering :

Oil - 1 tbsp
Mustard Seeds - 1 tsp

Green chilli -1 sliced
Sesame seeds - 2 tsp
Asafoetida - 1/4 tsp
Handful of Chopped Cilantro
Some grated coconut
Chilli powder for sprinkling

Lime juice - 1/2 tbsp
Water - 3 to 4 tbsp
Sugar - 1 tbsp (If you do not want it little sweet reduce the amount to 1/2 tbsp, we prefer dhokla little sweet)

Method :

1. Mix the besan, sugar, rawa, citric acid/lemon juice, water,oil, salt ,ginger and chilli paste without any lumps. Use whisk to make this job easier.
2. Now keep this mixture aside and make the steamer ready.
3. Coat a deep plate with the oil.
4. Now add the eno and mix well.  The batter will be very foamy.
5. Immediately pour the batter in the plate and steam for 20 to 25 minutes.
6. When it is cooling sprinkle the chilli powder. When it cooled completely cut into squares and let it be in the same plate or vessel.
7. Prepare the solution and tempering.
8. Mix 2 tbsp of water to 1/2 tbsp of lime juice and 1/2 tbsp of sugar and keep it aside.
9.  Heat oil in a small pan add mustard seeds, sesame seeds when it splutters add asafoetida and sliced green chillies.
10. Add the prepared lime solution to the tempered oil.
11. Now pour it over the Dhokla that is sprinkled with chilli powder and spread with the spoon.
12. Garnish with Coconut, coriander leaves.

Serve with Mint chutney.....

Note :

1. Once the dhokla is steamed..let it completely cool to get very neat squares.
2. Dhokla flour is available in the market with little grainy texture. If you are using it you can completely avoid adding rawa in the recipe.  Rawa is added just for the texture. It is absolutely optional.
