Dhokla is one of the easiest dishes that are both healthy and delicious.  This is an authentic Gujarati dish that is basically prepared in two ways. However, today we will be looking at how to make instant rava dhokla with tricolours, ahead of Independence day.

  • Start by mixing the sooji with yoghurt in a bowl let it sit for 15 minutes. 
  • Then puree both the carrot and spinach separately and store in two bowls.
  • Then divide the sooji mixture into three equal parts. Mix one each with spinach and carrot puree for orange and green colours.
  • Now, take the different colours and mix them separately with water for medium flow consistency.
  • Next, add 1/2 sugar and baking soda, mix well and transfer one layer at a time to the steaming container after greasing it with oil.
  • Steam each layer for 5 minutes, let it sit at room temperature and then remove it with the help of a knife.
  • Further, in a pan prepare the tempering with mustard seeds, asafoetida and green chillies, then add a mixture of lemon juice, sugar and water to the tempering.
  • Finally, add the tempering to the dhokla and voila!
