You do not need a steamer, or a mould to make this Dhokla. Isn't that awesome?
Gujaratis have had a strong foothold in India’s pop culture. We have learned a great deal about the community, their culture and food from countless hit TV shows and Bollywood Movies. Take ‘jalebi-fafda’ for instance, who knew a simple, rather off-beat combination sweet crispy jalebis and fafda (thin Gujarati crackers), would emerge as a beloved breakfast item even beyond Gujarat, thanks to a popular TV character’s obsession with the same? Gujarati cuisine is vast and vivid, but what intrigues us most is their class of snacks. The Farsaan and the Nasto. These are light nibbles that you can munch on through the day, some of these snacks like sev, gathiya et al can even be carried for long journeys. While talking about Gujarati food, how can we possibly not mention the Dhokla?
