STEP 1.In separate bowls, soak 1 cup chana dal, 1 cup urad dal and 1 cup rice for minimum 4 hours.
STEP 2.Place 1 cup of soaked chana dal and 1 cup of soaked urad dal in the tall jug of the grinder and grind to a smooth batter. Do not add too much water when grinding as curd will be added later. Pour it into a large bowl and keep aside.
STEP 3.In the same jug, put 1 cup of soaked rice, 1inch ginger sliced, 2 cut green chillies, 1tsp salt to taste, 2 tbsp curd. Grind to a smooth thick batter.
STEP 4.Pour this rice batter into the large bowl with the dal batter and stir them to combine well.
STEP 1.Cover and leave to ferment for 8 hours or overnight. When the batter is fermented there will be distinct air pockets in the batter.
STEP 5.Add 1 tbsp of oil and mix well. Grease the dhokla pan and fill the steamer with water.
STEP 6.Spoon the batter onto the pan and spread it to quarter inch thickness or till it fills the pan halfway. Do not fill it more than halfway, as khatta dhokla is a half inch thin dhokla.
STEP 7.Sprinkle little red chilly powder on the top. Cover and steam on high for about 10 minutes.
STEP 8.When the dhokla is cooked a knife inserted in it will come out clean. Remove the pan from the steamer and keep it aside to rest.
STEP 9.To make the tempering, heat a pan and add 1 tbsp oil, 1 tsp mustard seeds, 1 tsp sesame seeds, 2 slit green chillies, 1 sprig of curry leaf roughly torn and ¼ tsp asafoetida. Stir it and allow the tempering to splutter.
STEP 10.Cut the dhokla into diamond shapes or desired shape and size and transfer the pieces to a plate. Spoon the tempering over the khatta dhokla pieces.
