I love these dhoklas because they are quick, tasty and light.


  • 1 cup Suji
  • 2 Cup Curd (Dahi)
  • 3/4th tbsp  ENO powder (plain).
  • Salt to taste.
  • Black pepper Optional
  • Red Chilli Optional
  • 1 Tbsp Ginger garlic Green Chilli grinded (Optional)
  • 2 Tbsp Oil
  • Curry Leaves
  • Popeye Seeds - 1 tbsp
  • 1 tbsp - Mustard seeds
  • 1 tbsp - Cumin Seeds
  • 1 tbsp Sugar
  • Corriander Leaves for garnishing.


  1. Mix Suji and Curd and keep it for 1-2 hours for marination. You can also keep it overnight... However 1 hour is good enough.
  2. In a deep vessel keep some water for boiling. While this comes to a boil...
  3. Mix Ginger garlic Green Chilli paste , Salt, Black Pepper, Red Chilli (all as per taste ).
  4. Stir Well. Normally you would not need to add water. But check the consistency if its too thick you may need to add little bit of it. The batter should be of cake batter consistency.
  5. In the end add ENO (Plain) Powder. Stir quickly and Place in a greased thali.
  6. Keep this for Steaming for around 10  min.
  7. Once they are done and cold, cut into pieces.
  8. Now in a pan add some oil --- Mustard seeds, Cumin seeds ... once these are done add popeye seeds and Curry leaves. In the end add little sugar and  put the Dhokla's in the pan. Stir for 2-3 min and you are  done.
  9. Serve this pudina or Corriander chutney ....

As you guessed, it could be 'opium' poppy seeds [ khas khas, in the language of subcontinent ], dear Salma.

Hello Chris and Salma, this is in response to your queries pertained to Eno. Eno is the brand name for 'fruit salt' that is packed in small glass bottles and available in any East Indian grocery stores . This, usually, is meant to bring relief from indigestion and constipation in humanbeings after it's ingestion, but can also be used to promote and accelerate the fermenting process in dosa and idli batters, etc... Cheers!

Hi Drishti, The correct proportion of yogurt (curd) is 2 cups for 1 cup suji. I make it all the time.

Hello Soni I make from Besan too I will try and post the reciepe. I just happened to read the reciepe here again today and noticed it says 2 cups of curd ... whereas the correct proportion is 1 cup of curd (for 1 cup of Suji) .. Looks like a mis print ..
