Steamed Chickpea Flour Snack
Posted On: Apr, 11 | Author: Savita
This Chickpea flour snack is very very light, healthy and gluten free breakfast snack. Traditional Dhokla is made with fermented chickpea flour, but for its quick version, now-a-days fruit salt is added for instant sour and airy texture. I have used Eno (Fruit Salt) for this recipe. You can buy fruit salts from baking isle of your grocery stores.
Total Time: Prep Time: Cook Time: Cuisine: Indian (Appetizer, Breakfast, Snack, Bread)
- 1/2 Cup Chickpea Flour
- 1 tbsp Fruit Salt (Eno)
- 1 tsp Salt
- 2 tbsp Sugar
- 2 tbsp Lemon (Juice)
- 1/2 tsp Turmeric
- 2 tbsp Cilantro (For Garnish)
- 1 tsp Mustard Seeds
- 1 tsp Canola Oil
- 2-3 Curry Leaf (Optional)
- 2 tbsp Coconut (grated Optional)
- 1. Mix chickpea flour with 4 tbsp. water and 1/8 tsp salt. Make pancake like batter and set aside for 10 minutes.
- 2. In meantime, heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds and wait till they start sputtering. Add turmeric, curry leaf and fry for 30 seconds. Now add 1 cup water, salt, sugar and lemon juice. Bring to boil and then switch off the heat. Additional Notes: Let this mixture completely cool down.
- 3. Grease mold that can fit in your steamer,( I am using idili molds). Add 1 tbsp. of Fruit Salt to chickpea batter. Mix well. Batter will become very airy due to Baking Soda in fruit salt. Add 1 heaping tbsp. in all molds or if using single large mold then transfer all contents into the mold. Place mold carefully in steamer pot and steam for 7 minutes. Additional Notes: If using microwave steamer, that takes 4 minutes to steam Dhokla.
- 4. Transfer steamed Dhokla to a deep dish, pour water mixture over dhokla and let it soak for 3 minutes. Garnish with cilantro and grated coconut and serve at room temperature.
