Recipe Notes

Note: Please leave gap to rim of the plate while pouring the batter in the plates as the dhokla will raise when it’s getting steamed. Don’t put too much water at the bottom of the steamer as the water tends to go into plate and make the dhokla soggy......... 🙁

Have used lemon as getting sour curd is very difficult, if one have sour curd it can used and skip the lemon juice.
