Rice Dhokla

I adapted this recipe from Anupama. This Dhokla little bit tastes like Idli but little bit sour than idli. As I did not make any changes I am giving recipe as it is.


  • Rice: 1 Cup
  • Urad Dal: 1/4 Cup
  • Sour Curd: 1 Cup
  • Coarsely Ground Paper: As per Taste
  • Salt To Taste
  • Sugar To Taste
  • Eno Fruit Salt : 1 tsp
For Tempering:

  • Oil: 3 tbsp
  • Mustard Seeds: 2 tsp
  • Fresh Curry Leaves: 7-8
  • Small Pinch of Turmeric Powder


  1. Soak the rice and dal together for atleast 4-5 hours. After 4-5 hours grind the rice and dal to a fine paste. Leave this mixture for another 4-5 hours in a warm place. It does not need to ferment like the idli batter.
  2. After 4-5 hours add curd, salt, sugar and pepper to the batter, and mix well. Add just enough water to get a smooth batter .
  3. Oil a thali or dhokla stand . Add Eno Fruit salt to the batter . Mix well and immediately pour the batter into the Thali or Dhokla Mold.
  4. Steam for 8 to 10 mins. Then let it cool for a while.
  5. Prepare a tempering by adding mustard seeds and curry leaves to hot oil and spoon this over each piece of dhokla .
  6. You can eat this dhokla with mint chutney or tamarind chutney anytime of the day.
