4 Mouth Watering Gujarati Khaman Dhokla Recipe by Gujarati Rasoi

Gujarat and Khaman are synonymous with each other. Every city in Gujarat has its own Dhokla recipe like the Live Dhokla of Vadodara or the famous Rasavala Khaman of Surat. Dhokla is a steamed preparation consisting of various dals. The proportion and kind of dal used to make the Dhokla changes the texture and taste of dhokla.

These dhoklas are a major attraction in fairs of Gujarat.

3. Makai Na Dhokla
