Sandwich Dhokla

Gujarat has long stretches of unspoilt coastline and an endless supply of fish and shell fish. But strict Jainism in the past and orthodox Hinduism today has encouraged widespread vegetarianism.  The Gujarati cuisine is not heavily spiced but slightly sweeter than the cuisines of the neighbouring states.
Gujarati food is distinctively vegetarian with about 65% of its population shunning the meat.  The remaining 35% of the state’s population consists of Bohra Muslims and Parsis. Bohra Muslims are the followers of Abdullah who were Hindus who adopted Muslim religion.  The Parsi cuisine on the other hand is a blend of western influences.

Step 1

Take besan in a bowl. Add yogurt and mix well. Add water and whisk till smooth. Keep it overnight to ferment.

Dry roast the rice and dal on medium heat for four to five minutes. Cool and grind into a semi-coarse powder. Put the powder in a bowl.

Step 6

Keep the stand in the steamer, cover with the lid and steam till half done.Take the stand out and remove the dhokla plates. Spread green chutney evenly on both the white dhoklas. Pour the besan batter over this and rotate the plates so that the batter spreads evenly.
