Feel like having dhoklas for breakfast? You can whip them up instantly by using beaten rice, which requires no soaking or fermenting. These dhoklas also make a good tiffin option since they do not need reheating. Green chutney balances the not-so-spicy dhoklas.


Beaten rice 1/2 Cup (8 tbs) , coarsely crushed (thick)
Semolina 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)
Curd 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Green chilli paste 1 Teaspoon
Salt To Taste
Fruit salt 1 Teaspoon
Oil 1 Tablespoon
Mustard seeds 1/2 Teaspoon
Asafoetida 1 Pinch
Coriander 1 Tablespoon



1. Combine the curds and 1 cup of water in a deep bowl and mix well.

2. Add the semolina, beaten rice, green chilli paste and salt, mix well and keep aside for 10 minutes.

3. Just before steaming, add the fruit salt and 2 tsp of water over it.

4. When the bubbles form, mix gently.

5. Pour the batter into a greased 175 mm. (7”) diameter thali and shake the thali clockwise to spread the batter in an even layer.

6. Steam in a steamer for 10 to 12 minutes or till the dhoklas are cooked. Keep aside.

7. Heat the oil in a small pan and add the mustard seeds.

8. When the seeds crackle, add the asafoetida and sauté on a medium flame for a few seconds and pour this tempering over the dhoklas.


9. Cool slightly, cut into diamond shaped equal sized pieces and garnish with coriander. Enjoy.
