Sooji Dhokla Recipe/INSTANT DHOKLA

Sooji Dhokla
Rava /sooji dhokla is a Gujarati snack or nashta, prepared with fine sooji or semolina, adding curd. This snack is fondly cooked and eaten there every now and then. This dhokla prepares very soft and spongy
 There are two methods of fermenting the batter. One is the traditional in which the rava batter is kept overnight and the other one is instant,  in which Eno or fruit salt is added for fermentation . Here I am sharing the instant one
I too make them frequently as my family is very fond of steamed snacks. A flavourful tadka of mustard seeds and curry leaves adds the flavour
