  • Coriander Leaves 2 tablespoons
  • Fresh Coconut (grated) 2 tablespoons


  • 1. Add semolina (suji), ginger, green chili, yoghurt, oil, sugar, turmeric, lemon juice and salt in a bowl. Whisk well together then add water to make a batter (should be slightly thick).
  • 2. Keep aside for 10 – 15 minutes.
  • 3. In the meanwhile, grease a round or square pan with oil and prepare your steamer.
  • 4. Once everything is ready, add the Eno fruit salt in the batter and quickly pour the batter in the prepared pan. Shake the batter and make sure it is even.
  • 5. Keep the pan in a steamer and cover and steam for 20 minutes. Remove and cool slightly.
  • 6. Heat oil in a small frying pan. Add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, sesame seeds, curry leaves and stir for a few seconds. Once the mustard seeds splutter then pour over the rava dhokla.
  • 7. Top with coriander leaves and coconut.
  • 8. Slice and serve warm or cool.


Eno or fruit salt is used to make the batter airy. If you are unable to find Eno then use baking soda.
