Ready In :
- 2 cup fine sooji or rava or semolina

- 1 tsp eno (fruit salt) or baking soda
- 2 tbsp chopped coriander leaves
- salt as required
- ½ tsp mustard seeds (rai or sarson)
- 1 tsp sesame seeds (safed til)
- ½ tbsp oil
2. Take 2 cup fine sooji or rava or semolina in a mixing bowl, then add ginger-green chilies paste and salt.
3. Add 1 cup water or as required to make thick yet flowing water. the amount of water required depends on the quality of flour, so add as required.
4. Stir to a smooth thick batter without any lumps.
5. The batter should be thick yet flowing. Also bring to a boil 2 to 3 cups of water in a steamer pan or electric cooker or pressure cooker. The amount of water to be added depends on the size of the steamer or pressure cooker.
6. Then add 2 tsp eno or fruit salt.
7. Stir briskly and quickly. The fruit salt should be mixed evenly with the batter. or else you get uneven texture in the dhokla.
8. The batter would froth and become bubbly, so you have to be quick.
9. Pour the batter in the greased pan.
10. Steam for 15 to 20 minutes in an electric cooker. if using a pan or pressure cooker, steam for 12 to 15 minutes on a medium to high flame. here the rava dhokla is ready.(Quick tip- take toothpick and prick and see if it comes out clean, then its done.)
11. Slice and serve the rava dhokla warm or cool.
