As I told you ,earlier that I had ample quinoa flour in ma pantry,I made dhokla out of it......but with little bit twist...... just wanna share with you all...:)

  • Cook time:
  • Prep time:
  • Serves: 3 people
  • Yields: serves 2-3 person
  • For Batter:
  • 1 cup quinoa flour
  • 1 cup barley flour (jav ka atta)
  • 1/2 cup lotus seeds /talmakhana (GOKHULAKANTA/ KAILAYA-in hindi)
  • (roasted and powdered)
  • 1 cup soy milk
  • 1/2-1 cup plain water or as needed
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon citric acid or 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon white pepper powder
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tablespoon Eno fruit salt
  • For Tempering:
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 teaspoon mustard seeds
  • 1 tablespoon white sesame seeds
  • few curry leaves
  • For sprinkling :
  • re chilli flakes-as needed
  • Cooking oil for greasing the tin-as needed

For Tempering:
Heat oil and add all ingredients and keep aside.Again heat it,while using.Keep the steamer ,ready to heat.


For Batter:
Mix all ingredients and add Eno,whisk in one direction till fluffy and immediately pour in greased plate.


In a hot steamer,steam it for 15-20 min,cool and sprinkle red chilli flakes and pour tempering on it,cut and serve hot.


Can be served with any chutney / ketchup / hot dip / salsa......along with hot or cold beverage.


If by chance you don"t have quinoa flour,use oats powder .


If you wish can add any veggies by chopping or grating it will add color n nutrient to the dish.


In place of Eno,one can use 1/2 teaspoon soda-bi-carb,but then you have to rest the batter covered for 15 min.


If you don"t have soy milk or don"t like it ,can use butter milk or coconut milk or plain water in it"s place.


If you don"t have lotus seeds,then can avoid it or can replace it with any other nuts powder,cashew tastes nice.Or you can use coconut powder instead it.
