Introduction

Dhokla is usually made with gram flour but this instant rava dhokla is made with suji or rava and is a more quick and healthier option. They can be steamed in plates and cut into square pieces if you want but I personally prefer to steam it in a bubble steamer just like idlis. They tastes best with sweet tamarind and jaggery chutney. You can also have them with tomato ketchup. So whenever in search of heathy and tasty at the same time, opt for these healthy rava dhokla and please don’t forget to share your reviews in the comments section below.
