Long ago,I have shared Khaman recipe with you guys. This khatta dhokla is fermented version of dhokla recipe.Khatta dhokla is fermented,steamed,savory rice and lentils cake which is gluten free,less oily and nutritious.We have lot of variations in dhoklas and i promised you to share all them with you guys.

For now ,I am sharing the way my mom used to make.If you browse the recipe,You may find the versions which uses Urad dal(black skinless gram split) along with rice.I am adding surprise here🙂

I am not using Urad dal here.My mumma used to make this recipe with bengal gram/Chana dal along with rice.So the color of these dhoklas are yellowish.

You can use any type of rice here but please avoid to use boiled rice.In India, You will get ready made dhoklas as a snack in many shops but those are flour dhokla OR khaman.

Dhokla is Gluten free Recipe…

Khatta dhokla batter need to be fermented well if you want really spongy and savory dhoklas. Many people use curd or lemon juice to the batter for getting perfect sour taste. I usually avoid it.I believe in fermentation magic 🙂

quick tip to make perfect khatta dhoklas- “Avoid over fermentation of the batter”.

These dhoklas are even more spongy than idlis.I have prepared two versions here-One is with tempering and another one is regular masala dhokla without tempering.Me and mr.hubby likeskhata dhokla without tempering.And in ⇒my home⇐ ,It is normally breakfast menu for weekend.I recommend you to try these khata dhokla without tempering.dhokla-recipe
