Corn Dhokla | Makki Ka Dhokla
Written by Jayashree
Published on August 1, 2020

Corn Dhokla / Makki ki dhokla  is an instant food ready within 30 minutes. It is light and ideal as evening snack. One can pack it in the lunch box too.

Dhokla is a popular Gujarati snack. It is non-fried snack and usually made of gram flour. But today, different kinds of dhokla are made and  has two versions, traditional and instant.  Usually, the traditional one is fermented overnight and steamed the next day. But, instant versions are more popular as they are ready when needed. Additionally, an agent and sour curd is used to give the required sponginess.   I usually make khaman dhokla,  tri-colour dhokla, rawa dhokla and oats dhokla at home.

In today’s recipe,  corn kernels are made into a puree with yoghurt. It is then mixed with semolina and steamed. Later, it is cut and seasoning is put into it.

About the event:

Steamed food is healthy option that you can adopt for your cooking. Idli, dhokla, modak, nucchina unde are some of the dishes that we commonly associate with steaming. Well, this month, at Shh Secretly Cooking group, the theme is “Steamed Food”. The theme was suggested by Anu Kollan. Do check out her Vattayappam, Kerala style pancake, it looks delicious. Here, we are paired and the partner assigns secret ingredients to each other to prepare for the theme. I was paired with Poonam, a wonderful co-blogger. Hailing from Maharashtra, she shares many tasty dishes from that region. She gave me corn and oil and I made this Corn dhokla. Carom seeds and green chillies were the secret ingredients given to Poonam and she made the Gujarati Rice Khichu.
