Suji Dhokla Recipe


  • 1 Cup Suji
  • 1/2 tsp Ginger Paste
  • 1/2 tsp Green Chilli Paste
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tbsp Oil
  • 1/2 cup Sour Curd
  • 1/2 cup Water
  • 1 tsp Fruit Salt or Baking Soda

  • For the Tadka:
  • 1/2 tsp Rai
  • 4-5 Curry leaves
  • 2-3 Green Chillies - slit
  • 1 tbsp Oil


  1. Mix the suji, ginger paste, chilli paste, salt, sugar and oil and beat in the curd. Beat till smooth. Add the water and mix well again.

  2. Add the baking soda, stir gently and pour immediately into the greased tin and place in the steamer.

  3. Steam for 20 minutes. Remove the tin from the steamer and keep aside.

  4. Heat the oil for the tadka, add the rai, curry leaves and green chillies. Saute till slightly colored, and add 1/4 cup water.

  5. Cut the dhokla into desired sized pieces and pour the tadka over.

  6. Garnish with the coriander and coconut and serve with green mint chutney.

Tip: Always make sure that the potatoes are boiled well in advance and cooled before you use them. It would be better if they can be refrigerated for a short time. This helps the starch in the potatoes to settle down and the tikkis will not be gooey.
