- Two cups besan (gram flour)
- 2 tpsp rava (suji)
- 2 tbsp oil
- 1 tbsp sugar
- Salt as per test
- 1 tbsp of Eno Fruit salt (Use lemon flavour or without any flavour)
- freshly chopped coriander

For tampering:
- 1 tbsp rai (mustard seeds)
- 1 tpsp oil
- 3-4 tbsp water
- 1/2 tbsp sugar
- few curry leaves

1. In a bowl mix besan, rava, 2 tbsp oil, 1tbsp sugar and salt 
2. Add water slowly while continuously mixing so that lumps are not formed. Make a batter of pouring consistency
3. Grease a deep plate with oil and keep ready. In cooker keep sufficient water for heating. 
4. Add Eno Fruit salt to above batter, add a tbsp of water on eno and mix gently
5. Quickly pour the Dhokala mix in the greases plate
6. Now keep the Dhokala plate inside cooker on a base ring or some bowl which will keep the Dhokala plate away from the water in cooker
7. Close the lid, remove the cooker weight and steam for 10-12 minutes
8. Open and carefully check by inserting a knife, it should come out clean. If so the Dhokala is cooked
9. Take out the Dhokala plate and let it rest. After initial steam is evaporated, cut Dhokala impressions with knife
10. Now prepare the tampering. Heat 2 tbsp oil and add rai and as it crackles add curry leaves
12. Spread half tampering on the Dhokala directly and add the renaming to 3-4 tbsp water and 1/2 tbsp sugar mix (yes add the tampering to water!!)
13. Now spread this water mix on Dhokala and let it get soaked for 2-3 minutes
14. Garnish with freshly chopped coriander. Your Dhokala is ready!!

1. Adding oil to Dhokala batter makes Dhokala soft and while eating it does not stick/choke

2. Adding tampering water mix later makes Dhokala soft and delicate (this is called "pani pajane" literally translating to make Dhokala drink water :P )
