Mug Dhokla

Dhokla is a vegetarian dish which is belongs to Gujarat but very popular in other states too. Classic Dhokla is made with a fermented batter made from rice and split chickpeas.

But this is 5 minutes microwave instant Dhokla recipe.

I love this recipe. It’s soft, spongy and is extremely flavorful. A mouth-watering, nutritious and irresistible Gujarati snack that’s actually healthy, nutritious, gluten-free.


1 cup Besan

1/2 cup Curd

2 tsp. Suji

1 tsp. Chilli ginger paste

Pinch of Sugar( optional)

Salt to taste

2 tsp Oil

1/4 cup water

1/2 tsp Turmeric

1/2 tsp. Fruit salt ( eno)


1/2 – 1 tsp. oil

A pinch of asafetida

1/4 tsp. mustard seeds

4-5 curry leaves

1 green chili, chopped

1 tbsp grated coconut (fresh is better)

1 tbsp. water

1/2 tsp. sugar

1/2 tsp. lemon/lime juice


• Add all the dhokla ingredients except eno in a microwave safe mug. Mix really well until there is no lump and a smooth cake like batter is formed.

• Stir in eno and mix until frothy and almost double in volume.

• Microwave for 4 minutes or until inserted toothpick comes out clean.

• In the meanwhile, heat oil over medium heat. Add asafetida, mustard seeds and curry leaves. Let it splutter for few seconds until fragrant.
